Petworth & Pulborough Scout District

As Scouts, we prepare young people with #SkillsforLife in West Sussex

Cubs are young people aged between 8 and 10½, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.


During their time in the Pack, Cubs will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

There are a range of badges available which Cubs can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing.

Cubs also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

Structure and organisation

A Pack of Cubs is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.

News & Blogs

Works are now well underway at Wisborough Green Scout Hut to prepare it for the return of Scouting in September. Volunteers from the District Scout Active Support Unit have been cleaning out unwanted and old equipment, tidying and cleaning the hut and sorting through piles of wood in the grounds to make sure there’s plenty of space to run safe and fun activities for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The next project is the kitchen; we’ve removed most of the old units and are now planning how to turn the space into another usable area for running activities. Through lockdown we found that cooking was one of the favourite online activities and we plan to keep that going. We’ve kindly been donated a new double oven and we look forward to this project developing over the summer holidays.

But of course we need adults to run the group and we are pleased to report that this team is already growing with new Executive Committee members on board plus a Beaver Leader and a Skills Leader. Enquiries for joining the new Beaver and Cub units are coming in so we hope to have more leaders in place before the summer to allow training to start before our launch in September.

For more information about this exciting project or to register your interest please contact us at wisgreen@pandpscouts.org.uk. You can also read more about Scouting on this website and at www.scouts.org.uk
