We have two cub packs, Invincible & Illustrious, named after aircraft carriers, in keeping with our navel ties.
Progression within the Cub pack is through a badge system. Cubs are encouraged to further their own interests by gaining activity badges.
During the summer, water activities are undertaken. All Cubs are expected to take part in these, under the supervision of our leaders.
Camping and other outdoor activities are also undertaken. Activities are not normally cancelled because of bad weather.
The leaders direct the children’s training, and have great experience in dealing with youngsters under the unusual environments of camps and group life

Some Units hold their meetings in a hall, or at someone’s house, or even up a mountain! You will be able to gain badges such as the Chief Scout’s Diamond and Platinum Awards. The highest award you can earn is the Queen’s Scout Award. This is recognised by many employers as the sign of someone that is enthusiastic, dedicated and reliable.
