Cub Scouts (8-10.5)

Cub Scouts are young people usually aged between eight years and ten and a half years old, they belong to the second Section in the Scouting family.

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 climbing.
Badges can be gained by taking part in activities at Cubs and elsewhere.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, along with camps both local and further afield

2nd Portishead Cubs also enjoy District & County events and these in the past have included camps, cooking competitions and activity days.
