Cub Pack Information
We currently meet in the Old School House on Main Street in Newcastle, Co. Dublin (approx. 8 minutes from Celbridge) on Friday nights from 7:45pm to 9.15pm.
A Cub Pack is generally divided into small groups called Sixes. A six may have 6-7 Cubs; each Six has a Leader called a ‘Sixer’ and an assistant Leader called a ‘Seconder’ who are chosen from the more experienced Cubs.
The adult Scouters take names from Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book and are called either by the first names or by their Jungle Book names (if they have them) i.e. Akela, Baloo, Bagheera etc.
Our Leaders (also called Scouters) are all voluntary. The Cub Section Leader is John Free.
Generally in a pack meeting we play games, often in teams which helps develop team work and co-operation, and do what we call badge work.
The Cub Pack also has outings, hikes, Pack Holidays, camps and joint outings and trips with other Packs and sometimes joint activities with the Beaver Colony and Scout Troop. We plan to provide a fun packed and challenging programme for all our Cubs.
