Cubs

Cubs is the Scout section for Boys & Girls aged 8 to 10.5.
At the 84th Reading Scout Group our two Cub Scout packs meet on Mondays from 6:30pm to 8pm in Loddon Primary School during school term times only.
The programme offers fun filled activities both in the hall and around the community, including games, hikes, community work, outdoor adventures, water sports, snow sports, visits, sleepover camps and parties.
If you are interested in applying for a place for your child to join our Cubs when they are old enough then please fill in a joining form and we will add them to our waiting list.
Places will be allocated based on our waiting list policy; we will contact you to confirm your child has been added to our waiting list and then if and when a space is available for your child to join.
If you are aged over 18 and would like to join our enthusiastic team of Leaders please fill in a volunteering form.

Badges

Purple Membership badge and green group badges are awarded when first invested.
Red activity badges are earned in one or two sessions. Blue activity badges are staged badges which have a number on – when sewing on a higher number the lower number badge should be removed.
Blue challenge badges require many sessions to complete and when all 7 have been collected they will earn the Chief Scout Silver award.
Badges are awarded at our badge ceremony at the end of each half-term.

Meeting Information

Meeting times: Monday 6:30pm – 8pm – arrive before 6:30pm.
Meeting every Monday during school term times.
Meeting location: Loddon Primary School, RG6 7LR.
But many sessions will be out and about in the local community.
What to bring: Uniform, neckerchief, woggle, water bottle.
In warm weather a hat and Cubs t-shirt can be worn. Sun cream should be applied in advance.

New Cubs

Cubs join at the beginning of each team, and will make their scouting promise at the investing ceremony after attending at least 4 sessions. New Cubs can wear normal clothes for the first few sessions, but should wear uniform once invested.
Parents can stay for the first session to help their child settle in, but after the first session should not attend every week. Parents are asked to volunteer to help a couple of times each term, which is not required but is very important to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Uniform

The uniform consists of a Cubs t-shirt, Cubs Jumper and 84th Reading neckerchief, which all need to be purchased from the Woodley Scout Shop. You don’t need to buy a woggle as one is presented after your Beaver has made their promise.
