Blackburn District Scouts

Delivering Scouting to Young People in the Blackburn Area



Boys and girls aged 8 to 10½

Cubs are boys and girls aged between 8 and 10½, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.

 

Activities

During their time in the Pack, Cubs will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

There are a range of badges available which Cubs can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing.

Cubs also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.

 

Structure and organisation

A Pack of Cubs is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.

Please note many of our Cub Packs operate a waiting list.

Over 400 Scouts from right across the town came together to support their local club Blackburn Rovers against Luton Town in the EFL Championship.

The event was organised jointly by Blackburn Rovers Community Trust and Blackburn Scouts to give young people a taste of Championship football. For many of the Scouts this was their first time at a football match.

A massive thankyou to the Community Trust for inviting us along on the day ... the young people had a blast.
