Cubs

Our Cub Scouts take young people from the ages of 8 – 10 ½. The Cubs meet on Wednesday evenings, monthly subs are £12.50, which are to be paid monthly. The uniform is a green sweatshirt, navy trousers and our Group’s Kneckerchief.

Cub Scouts enjoy new adventures while making new friends along the way. Their commitment is recognised by over thirty activity badges. As well as regular weekly meeting, Cub Scouts also go camping, play games, explore the outdoors, try adventurous activities – such as climbing, sailing and archery, meet people from their local community, experience the culture of other countries and keep themselves and others safe.

If you are interested in joining our Cub Pack, please email the Cub Leader on [email protected] for more information.

In 2023 the Cubs entered two teams in the Gloucester District Cubs Quiz, one team came in third place and the other team were in fifth place, the scores were very close together. They visited the knife angel which was on display at Gloucester Cathedral, spent an evening at Retroo Box where they played on old game consoles. Enjoyed a private cinema session at the Sherbourne Cinema with the rest of the Group, As part of the Coronation Celebrations they made bunting to decorate the hall that they meet in, all members of the Group decorated their own piece, they took part in the Big Help Out litter pick in Kingsholm and went on the Coronation Trail around Gloucester. Had fun on a weekend camping with the other sections of the Group enjoying wide games, zip line, pedal karts, string trail, paddle and rowing boats, archery and many other activities and games. Were very brave and climbed the spiral staircase to the top of Gloucester Cathedral Tower. In the summer holidays the Cubs went on a four day summer camp to Glennywood Scout Campsite in Clapton in Gordano, during the camp they went grass sledging, confidence course, a visit to the RNLI in Portishead, a trip to Puxton Park and also on the beach in Weston Super Mare. At the end of September they enjoyed a night camping at Beaver lodge in the Forest of Dean, during the weekend they had a trip on the Dean Forest Railway, went on a walk, did some geocaching, played games and enjoyed a camp fire. They gained their Astronomer Badge during a sleepover. They finished the year ice skating with the Scouts and Explorers. These are just some of the activities that the Cubs did in 2023.

They are starting 2024 with two teams entering the Gloucester District Cubs Quiz in January.
