Cubs are the second section in the scouting family, after beavers and before scouts. Cub Scouts are young girls and boys usually aged between 8-10.5yrs old. Our Cub pack is a friendly and active place for you child to join – we get up to all sorts of things, including camping outdoors, science experiments, exploring the outdoors and much more!

A standard Cub night starts at 7pm and finishes at 8.30pm. A night at Cubs consists of games, badge work, more games and most importantly…FUN!

  • Cubs are open to both girls and boys.
  • We have roughly 25 Cubs attend each week.
  • If you are interested in joining please get in touch via Contact Us
    • Joining the list does not guarantee a space. Don’t delay join the waiting list today!
  • More information on Cubs can be found at

What do cubs do?

Cubs do a wide range of activities, including several camps and sleepovers each year.  Activities range from arts and crafts to climbing and abseiling to kayaking – we like to give the cubs an experience of the adventure that scouting has to offer! There’s no dib, dib, dib here anymore!

Our programme is carefully planned according to the “Balanced Programme” philosophy that scouting promotes in order to provide a wide range of activities and experiences. We make the programme exciting and educating for cubs to enjoy.

Please note if your child joins the waiting/joining list before they are aged 6 they are likely to get a space. Joining after this age it is unlikely a space will come available as young people filter through to the older sections.

Who are the leaders?

Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running cub meetings! All adult leaders have training and a PVG check, and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified.

If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more leaders! See the full group leadership and executive committee here.

Where do my badges go?


Cub uniform is a green sweatshirt which can be bought (in store or online) at the Glasgow Scout Shop for £14.50, we also stock a small amount of jumpers. Neckie, woggle and badges will be supplied for £6 once your child is invested – usually a 3 or 4 weeks after joining. Investiture is a small ceremony where you child says their Cub promise after learning some basics of Scouting.


Main badges: Membership Award, Group Name tape, Scotland, Calder and Clyde will be supplied at investiture. They will make their promise during the investiture.

The cubs take part in many activities that work towards badges – when they are awarded one, please sew it onto the uniform in the position outlined below.

The highest badge in Cub Scout is the Chief Scout Silver Award which we aim to have every Cub through by the time they move to Scouts!

More information about the badge scheme can be found on the website.
