Cub Scouts (Age 8–10)

    As a Pack, Cub Scouts plan adventures like hikes, weekend camps and water activities (like canoeing and kayaking), discovering their unique capabilities and personal progression along the way.

    In Cub Scouts youth can sleep beneath the stars, hike with gear on their backs, eat gooey marshmallows on a stick or see an otter splashing in a stream just a few feet away.

    Developing well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world.

    Message: Through our Plan-Do-Review method, Cub Scouts are empowered to learn by doing. With Scouts Canada’s Youth-led programming, youth put leadership and teamwork into play by planning their activities with the guidance of an adult Scouter. The great Scouting adventure allows youth to explore new things, share ideas, learn new skills and create new paths.

    Cub Scouts is filled with a little bit of everything and plenty of opportunities for youth to personally develop in areas including like social, physical, intellectual, character, emotional and spiritual. Along the way Cub Scouts meet new friends, learn teamwork, and develop self-confidence.
