Cubs

The 11th/9th Cambridge Cub Pack, in Newnham is based at the Newnham Scout and Guide Centre. The pack meets from 18:45 until 20:15 on Tuesdays.

Cubs is 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 our Pack we do a wide variety of fun things. Cubs will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting often related to gaining badges for their uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

Recent activities have included making bird boxes, going on a camp with the rest of the Group, going to Duxford and a trip to the Cambridge University Observatory.
