About Cub Scouts (8 to 11 years of age)
Cubbing is built around a lively variety of games, crafts, music, storytelling, play acting, spiritual fellowship and the outdoors. The Cub program focuses around six activity areas: The Natural World, Outdoors, Creative Expression, Healthy Living, Home and Community, and Canada and the World. Individual interests and skills are recognized through simple awards.
The outdoors is an essential part of the Cub program. Weekend events, hikes and overnight camping opportunities round out the Cubbing experience.
Cubs meet in a group called a pack. The pack is split into smaller groups called sixes. There is one leader for every six Cubs. Each Cub learns a promise, law and motto to help guide their personal development.
Cub Scout Promise:
I promise to do my best to love and serve God,
To do my duty to the Queen;
To keep the law of the Wolf Cub pack,
And to do a good turn for somebody every day.
Cub Scout Law:
The Cub respects the Old Wolf, The Cub respects himself/herself.
Cub Scout Motto:
Do Your Best

Matthew Kearns: KAA – He was a volunteer Scouter last year, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This year, he hopes to become a leader and continue on with the 28th’s program that is both fun, informative and character building for the kids. He was in Scouts Canada’s youth program from Beavers to cubs with other groups and Scouts in the 28th, and hopes to continue on as an adult with what he feels is an excellent program, and an excellent group.
