What are Wolf Cubs?
Wolf Cubs continue to this day for the 7½-11 age group. The ‘Pack’ meets weekly - usually for one and half hours. The Pack has a number of Sixes distinguished from each other by colour patches on their upper left sleeve. Sixes are made up of six Wolf Cubs with one (called a Sixer) responsible for his/her Six ensuring the younger and less experienced Wolf Cubs are looked after during the Pack activities.
What happens at Cubs?
eetings activities and some can be done at home or may well be achieved if they have other interests.
Out and about exploring their local surroundings and learning about their local community is also part of the program. They will learn and understand in more depth about their local public and community services and often get hands on demonstrations from those professionals who take time out to tell them about their roles in the community.
Usually Wolf Cub Camp is the first experience any young person gets of camping (without Mum or Dad) with friends. They learn how to look after themselves (personal hygiene) and their belongings and help each other. Camp activities are well planned and supervised by the leaders to ensure the Wolf Cups are kept busy, active, happy and having bags of fun!!
Modern day Wolf Cubs includes girls & boys as part of an integrated approach. The Wolf Cubs are encouraged through the training programme to become better citizens, work together in team activities, explore their environment& help each other to succeed.
A successful Wolf Cub BEAMS:
Be Prepared - A healthy, active & alert mind
Enjoy Life - A happy approach to everything you do
Achieve More - An opportunity to expand personal goals
Make a Difference - A chance to help & support others
Stay Safe - An understanding of the world in which we live
As a Wolf Cub progresses through their 3-4 years in the section, they start to experience camping under canvas & take part in activities & events that give them a taste of what scouting will be like when they finally move up.
Wolf Cubs meet on Wednesdays, from 6.30 to 8.00, at our headquarters or other arranged locations. Camps and additional activities take place at weekends and during school holidays.
