Cub Scout Law
Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn everyday
Cub scouts borrow much of its system from 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard
Kipling. The cubs meet in a group called a Pack (as in a pack of wolves).
The leader of the Cub Scouts section is called 'Akela' and the other leaders
may take Jungle Book names such as Bagheera, Baloo, Kaa, Mowgli, Chil,
Hathi, Raksha, Ramea and Shere Khan.
The Cub leaders are as follows:
At the beginning and end of each pack the Cubs hold a type of ceremony
called 'Grand Howl' as well as flag break/flag down.
As a Cub you will be placed into a pack. The packs are organised into
Sixes. Each six has their own colour and the Cubs in that six wear a woggle
of the colour on their neckerchief (scarf). Each six is made up of approx
6 Cubs of varying ages. New Cubs will usually be put into a six where
they know at least on other Cub.
Each six has a 'Sixer' who is in charge of the six. He/She is helped by
a 'Seconder'. A Cub is not usually made up to a Seconder or Sixer unless
they have shown their competence & good behaviour.
As a Cub Scout you will be able to enjoy all sorts of things.
