With the Cub motto, “Do Your Best”, girls and boys aged 8-10 take on new challenges with their Cub Pack, embarking on outdoor adventures and exploring a variety of fun activities like STEM projects and cultural experiences.
Through Scout Canada’s Plan-Do-Review method, Cub Scouts are empowered to learn by doing. As a Pack, Cub Scouts plan adventures like hikes, weekend camps and water activities (like canoeing and kayaking), discovering their unique capabilities and personal progression along the way.
This signature summer camping adventure will test the Cub’s skills that they have learned throughout the year. Typically taking place near the end of the scouting year in May, Cubs face off with other groups from the Richmond Area to compete in the areas of orienteering, cooking and scout skills. Through this event, a Cub can be expected to widen their perspective of the world and scouting, and be able to interact with other fellow youth their age.
Science World Sleepover
The sleepover experience is one that is unique and exciting for Cubs. Not just an experience, it is an opportunity to get away from parents and to spend a night with all the fun and fantastic machines, gadgets and friends. It is a night at the omnimax theater with lots of exploration and fun scientific shows.
Winter Camping at Seymour
A test for Cubs, the winter camping adventure is a glimpse to what can be expected as they continue to grow and develop into the Troop section. Youth is challenged to face the winter cold while running all the same daily activities outdoors as you would in any other seasonal camps. Whether it is a hike, a wide game or pioneering, youth will do it all, experience winter under a safe and supervised environment. Although it is a challenge, many participants always end up with a smile, and look to return when the next year comes around!
Cub Scout Program
Personal Achievement Badges (PAB)
Personal Achievement Badges (PAB) are a set of 16 section-specific badges at the Beaver, Cub, and, Scout sections. These badges are designed based on interest areas of youth at their age group and the end goal is for youth to develop their self-interest and individuality. Progress for these badges should primarily be self-driven by the youth under the “Plan-Do-Review” framework and is mostly done outside of the regular scouting session. Our scouters are trained to help guide youths through this process. Parents and guardians are encouraged to take a part in helping their youth develop their interests. You can read more about the PAB component here.
The Seeonee Award is the top award of the cub section. and it is comprised of three major components:
- Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS)
- Community Service
- Meaningful Project
Cub scouts can complete the OAS requirements throughout their years in the cub section and at their last year (howler), cub scouts can complete the community service and meaningful project components. You can read more about the Seeonee award requirements or top section awards here.
Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS)
The Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS) is a core component of Scouts Canada’s youth program. It is important to allow youth to develop outdoor skills which enables them to acquire streams of skills to equip themselves to eventually create their own unique outdoor experiences as they grow up. This program is linear throughout the youth program (Beavers through to Rovers) and is separated into 9 different streams and 9 stages each for a total of 81 stages. You can read more about OAS component here.
Uniform Placement Guide
Below is a general guide for badge placement on the uniform. Please sew the badges on the uniform and keep in mind that OAS badges will have to be replaced as youths move to the next stage.
If you are joining scouting for the first time or moving up to a new section, please purchase the shirt at the scout shop. Our group will present the crests and neckerchief at the investiture ceremony.
