Scouting is one of the great success stories of the last 100 years. From an experimental camp for 20 boys on Brownsea island in 1907, it has spread to 216 countries and territories, with an estimated 28 million members.

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. In nearly a century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Cubs comes after Beavers and before Scouts.  A Cub is typically 8-10.5yrs old.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out. In Oxted we run at least two camps a year, one over a weekend in May with other Cub Packs in East Surrey and one in the summer, usually for 5 days – in 2018, we camped in the New Forest. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
