Cub Scouts typically meet once a week during school terms. At the meetings they will play team games and learn Scouting skills like hiking, camping, knots, first aid, cooking etc.

When they have met a set of challenges or have mastered a particular level in a skill they earn a badge to sew on their UNIFORM.

Cubs work in small teams called Sixes which are led by a Cub Scout – called a Sixer – and an assistant called a Seconder. Adult leaders – known as Scouters, just one of the many SCOUTING TERMS you’ll learn – will do their best to let every child have a turn in these roles. Cubs will be involved in planning and running some of their own meetings & activities. They take part in planning their own camps – for example deciding on the menu and doing some cooking on camp, and deciding which activities to do.

Weekly meetings are only half the story. The real adventure is in the outdoors – hill walks up mountains, treasure hunts, one or two or three night camps, litter-picking, parading on Saint Patrick’s Day, hostel trips, and sometimes overseas trips. Children of this age love the outdoors and once they have the RIGHT GEAR, won’t mind a bit of rain. They also handle overnights without parents brilliantly, but if you want to come along CONSIDER BECOMING A SCOUTER – we always need more volunteers.

When your Cub turns twelve they will be invited to move up to SCOUTS where the adventure continues with old friends from Cubs and new Scout friends.

Scouters are Garda Vetted and trained in Child Protection issues. Scouting Ireland is committed to SCOUTING SAFELY at all ages.

A large group of Cub Scouts is a Pack, their small teams are Sixes led by the Sixer and Seconder with a Scribe taking notes. They are Kind, Honest, Friendly and Trusted.
