Being a Cub Scout gives You Adventure
At Buderim Cub Scouts meet on Monday nights from 4.45 – 6.30pm
What do cubs do ... They have fun.
Cub Scouts have a lot of fun doing a lot of interesting things! There are games to play, codes and skills to learn, places to see and new friends to meet.
Cub Scouts all help each other, and try to help other people too. Each week you'll get together with other boys and girls your age and be led into adventure! You'll wear the National Cub Scout uniform to show you're one of us. And you'll be able to earn special badges to put on your uniform to show your achievements.
Fun Out and About: Cub Scouts get to see a lot and do a lot. We spend weekends away together camping, fishing and exploring. We go to sports meetings, visit factories, go to the zoo, the museum, or the fire station. We learn bushcraft, and we learn how to fly model airplanes, even fly in real planes!
Fun in a Pack: You'll find there are around 24 boys and girls in your Cub Scout Pack. All of them are just like you. They all might have different interests and be good at different things, but they all want to enjoy themselves and have fun. Like you, they'll be learning new things each week and discovering how great it is to be a Cub Scout.
Fun from the Start: At your first Pack meeting you may feel a bit shy to begin with but you will have a "buddy" and it won't take long to get to know everyone.
Fun in a Six: Your Pack will be divided into `Sixes', so named because each `Six' will have 6 people in it. One of the first badges you'll put on your uniform is the colour patch of your Six. Fun with your Sixer One of the boys or girls in your group will be your 'Sixer' (a bit like the Captain of your school sports team). The Sixer is usually an older Cub who has shown some leadership skills and is prepared to help other Cub Scouts.
You'll know your Sixer by the two yellow stripes worn on their left pocket. The Sixer often has a 'Second' as a helper (a bit like a Vice-Captain) who wears one yellow stripe. You too could eventually wear these stripes one day and become a Sixer or a Second of your Pack. Everyone gets to be a Leader in Cub Scouts.
You'll learn the Scout Salute, the Handshake, the Motto, the Grand Howl, Pack Calls, and other ceremonies, the Cub Scout Law and the Cub Scout Promise. The leaders will help you. You'll soon be making friends with the other Cub Scouts and having a terrific time!
Fun earning Badges: Cub Scouts can earn Achievement Badges by doing things that interest them and by learning new skills like cycling, electronics, sports, cookery, boating, writing and more. There are also special Boomerang Badges earned by doing things like tying knots, first aid, hiking in the bush and building models. There are three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold Boomerang Badges.
The programs in Cub Scouts emphasize exciting and challenging activities based on individual needs.
All Cub Scout activities are designed to be appropriate to age, development, social competence, family and community circumstances.
