About Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts get into heaps of seriously exciting indoor and outdoor activities designed to foster friendship, teamwork and self confidence whilst having awesome fun.

There are outdoor adventures like rock climbing, abseiling, camping, bushwalking, canoeing, sailing, gliding and flying, and billy-karting. You can learn traditional Scouting skills such as tying knots and navigating using a map and compass. You’ll play games, help others to ‘do their best’, and learn what to do in an emergency. You’ll visit exciting places and may even have the opportunity to attend a State Cuboree.

For a more detailed introduction to Cub Scouts please visit the Scouting Australia Website.
