Cubs

Ages 8-10

Challenging hikes, weekend camps, and an introduction to water activities like canoeing or kayaking are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy.

With the Cub motto of "Do Your Best" front and centre, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities.  Learning important first aid skills, paddling a canoe for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.

Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves and work as a team – and most importantly have a lot of fun!

Activities

The Cub Scout program focuses on six activity areas: The Natural World, Outdoors, Creative Expression, Healthy Living, Home and Community and Canada and the World. Activities include: 

  • Challenging hikes, weekend camps and outdoor activities

  • Water activities like canoeing and kayaking

  • Games and sports

  • Model-building 

  • Music, storytelling and play-acting
