Young people can join Cub Scouts in the three months leading up to their eighth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Scouts, when they are ready, usually at ten and a half years old but sometimes can be up to their eleventh birthday.
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.
