Cubs promise to be loyal and obedient and to never give in to themselves. The cub pack is divided into groups called sixes, each headed by a peer 'Sixer' and 'Second'. This offers development of leadership, peer management, loyalty and support based skills and character.
Cubs learn by 'doing' and are presented with a.progressively challenging series of tasks to complete their Bronze Boomerang, Silver Boomerang and Gold Boomerang awards. The ultimate achievement award in the Cub section is the Grey Wolf Award.
The aim is for Cub Scouts to build self confidence, independence, a sense of fair play and an awareness of their role in the surrounding community and environment. Most of all the aim is to have loads of fun while doing this.
The Jungle Book provides the names for the Leaders but it also provides inspiration for many of the games and lessons learned in Cub Scouts. The Jungle Book provides excitement and action combined with the strict moral code of the Jungle Law. There is development of skills and the passing on of those skills to others as expressed in the stories of Mowgli: there are the lessons of the importance of physical fitness, love of nature, self-reliance, obedience, loyalty and courtesy. Therefore almost all aspects of of Cub Scout philosophy can be found in the Jungle Book.
What to expect at Cub Scouts
Every activity that the Cub Scouts do is designed to enhance their physical, intellectual, spiritual, and social development and is based on the Cub Scout motto and the Scout Law.
Community service: this is an important aspect of Scouts as building better citizens is our core aim. Community service activities might include participating in Clean Up Australia Day, visiting a nursing home or helping to re-vegitate an area of bushland. Cub Scouts are encouraged to find and develop ways to contribute to their community.
Games: Leaning about team work, leadership and co-operation while developing gross motor skills and building physical confidence.
Outdoor Activities: Getting out in nature on activities such as a nature hike can make Cub Scouts think about the environment they are in, and start to care about it.
Environmental activities: A large part of the Cub Scout Award Scheme focuses on the environment and Scouting has a strict environmental charter. Specific projects such as caring for a pet or area of native bushland can count toward a badge while increasing the Cub Scout's knowledge of the world around them.
Camping: Camping offers a whole range of activities that you just can't access from the hall. Cub Scouts can get further afield into the environment and learn more about themselves and their Pack on an extended adventure.
Cooking: Our Cub Scouts enjoy learning about how to cook at a campfire when on camp. Gaining skills in how to be resourceful when it comes to organising food without electricity.
