The Cub Scout Pack
Welcome to Cub Scouting
In January 2013 PG opened a second Cub Pack, which is called Littlewick, the origional Cub Pack will now be called Winter Hill.
Both Cub Packs meet on Wednesdays from 6.25pm to 8.00pm, during term-time and during half term holidays.
LG - Littlewick meet at the Gilchrist Village Hall, Littlewick Green SL6 3RG.
WH - Winter Hill meet at our Scout Hall in Winter Hill Road, Pinkneys Green SL6 6NS.
Cub Scouting, by tradition, has adapted ideas from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. You will find that some of the leaders are known by the names of the animals in this book, such as Akela, Raksha, Baloo, etc.
The Cub Scout leader (Akela) and his assistants have undertaken designated training in order to run an imaginative and active programme.
The Cub Scout Pack caters for children between 8 and 10½ years old. The Pack is divided into small groups called "Sixes", each one named and identified by a coloured woggle, which are led by the Sixer and a Seconder.
The Pack has simple ceremonies and you are welcome to attend your child's Investiture when he makes his promise.
The Cub Scout Promise is I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people and keep the Cub Scout Law.
The Cub Scout Law is Cub Scouts always do their best, think of others before themselves and do a good turn every day.
The Cub Scout Training Programme
After investiture the Cub Scout will hopefully, during the full programme achieve the Chiefs Scout Silver award by completing at least 3 challenge badges.
There is also a moving-on award for a Cub Scout joining the troop.
The progressive awards are supported by a large number of Activity Badges. Details of all these badges can be obtained from Chil.
