Welcome to the 18th Purley Cub Pack

Cubs are young people who: Master new skills and try new things. Have fun and go on adventures. Make friends. Are curious about the world around them. Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond.


Every term week we gather in our group called a Cub Pack to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities having lots of fun along the way. The Cub leader is nicknamed Akela after the wise leader of the wolf pack in Rudyard Kipling’s novel, The Jungle Book. As well as the Cub leader, other adults including parents are asked to be on hand to supervise activities, share their skills and keep everyone safe. Within their Pack, Cubs are also part of a Six. A Six is a smaller group of Cubs, headed up by a Sixer and a Seconder. Sixers and Seconders are Cub Scouts who are chosen to take on leadership responsibilities, such as welcoming new people to the Pack, being extra helpful on camp, or taking charge of a particular game or activity.

There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your 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.
