For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key, meeting for 1½ hours per week either on a Monday or a Tuesday. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.

The Cub Pack is the third section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.


During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. Participation and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Cub Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

Further information about badges and awards for the Cub section can be found here.

The Cub Scout Promise

There are a number of variations of the Cub Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. These can be found here.

Unless we are requested otherwise, we tend to use this promise:

  • I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God
  • and to the King,
  • to help other people
  • and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

The Cub Scout Law:

  • Cub Scouts always do their best
  • Think of others before themselves
  • And do a good turn every day.


Cubs may wear a dark green sweatshirt with the green and black Group scarf (often called a necker) and a woggle in the colour of their Six.

While our local Scout shop is closed, a sweatshirt, polo shirt, trousers and belt can be purchased online at either of these sites:

The Scout Store or The Glasgow Scout Shop

We also sell second hand uniform for those that request it.

The location for Cub badges on the uniform can be found here.
