For ages 8 to 10, our Cub Pack holds weekly meetings and run a very lively programme. The programme is designed to be enjoyed by all and incorperates many aspects of the scouting life. Our meetings are normally held in the hall and occasionally we go out and about in order to provide fun activites fo our cubs. We take a huge amount of pride in our cubs and we are never let down by their exceptional behaviour (especially when on outings and with guests).
In cubs they are required to make a promise to their scout troop. Making the Promise is the most important act in Scouting and is common to every Section. Scouting has a special ceremony for making the Promise called Investiture or being invested. When a young person makes their Promise they receive their Group Scarf, The Membership Award and are welcomed as a new Member into the Scout family. The promise is not too dissimilar to the Beaver promise however it is a tiny bit more complex. It is as follows:
I promise that I will do my best,
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people,
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.
The Cub Scout law:
Cub Scouts always do their best,
Think of others before themselves,
And do a good turn every day.
The Cub Scout Motto:
Cub Scouts wear a dark green sweatshirt with their group scarf/neckerchief ( At 21st Maidenhead our colours are red with white stripes). They also wear a woggle in the colour of their Six. Here is a diagram of where their badges should go on their uniform:
