Discovery Cubs

The Discovery pack is a mixed pack of both Girls and Boys between the ages of 7year and 11years.   
 

We have 33 invested Cubs and 3 Chums at present. The Cubs are split into 8 Sixes being White, Blue, Purple, Green, Red, Orange, Brown and Yellow (5 boys and 3 girls).  .

 

Our  Pack Scouters are Akela (Paul McCloghrie) and Mang (Cindy McCloghrie). Following Scouting tradition, all cub pack leaders adopt names from Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book”.  

  

The Cub Trail is split According to age as follows:  

Silver Wolf 7-8 year olds 

Gold Wolf 9-10 year olds
  

Cubs who are 10 years old also get to work toward their Leaping Wolf badge, the highest award for a cub.  

 

In addition to working towards their Advancement badges, cubs also work on Interest Badges, of which there is a large variety including Sportsman, Swimming, Handcraft, Recycling, First Aid & Health and many more. We try and encourage the Cubs to work on as many badges as they can.
