The best way to find out what Scouts get up to is to find your nearest group and go and see for yourself!

Cub Scouts are young people usually aged between eight and ten years old. They belong to the second Section in the Scouting family between Beavers and Scouts. Young people can join Cub Scouts in the three months leading up to their eighth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Scouts, between ten and ten years six months.

Easily recognised by their distinctive green sweatshirts, Cubs do loads of fun things, including activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. Do them well and they earn you a badge to wear on their uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. They also go camping with the rest of your Pack, sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

All the badges on the right sleeve should be positioned below the embroidered Scouts logo. The 'Ware & District' and 'Hertfordshire County' badges on the right sleeve should read ‘District’ then ‘County’ from left to right, as shown here:
