Cub Scouts (8-10.5)

Cub Scouts are the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

In Chorley District in 2014 we continued growing our numbers. With 23 Cub Packs and over 400 Cubs enjoying the adventure, to find you nearest group just click here.

Key Events and Activities

Every pack has their own programme of events which is supplemented throughout the year by larger District and County events. This includes special activity days, challenges and competitions and District and County Camps. A full list of these can be found here and in the Downloads section

Chief Scout Silver Awards Night

Every February all the Cubs who have achieved their Chief Scout Silver Award over the past 12 months is celebrated at our Chief Scout Silver Awards Night where they all receive a District Certificate for their hard work with their parents and leaders. It is great to see so many Cubs work so hard and achieve the highest award available to them which is something that only 10% of Cub Scouts achieve nationally. This year we had a record number of over 70 Cubs receiving their awards. This is more than double the national average.
