The Cub Scout Pack (7-11 Y/O)
Age – 7 to 11 years
The Cub Section is for children aged between 7 and 10. The section is based upon The Jungle Book Story which was written by Rudyard Kipling. The story is about a boy named Mowgli who got lost in the jungle, but was found and raised by wolves and taught by all the other animals, namely Akela, Baloo and Bagheera, where Mowgli is associated with the new cub member, the wolves are the older cubs and the other animals are the Pack Leaders.

During the cub’s duration in the pack, the cub will learn to do several things. He will learn from the leaders, from his friends and sometimes even on his own. To judge his ability in doing things right, even if not on his first trial, several badges are given in different categories. These badges are listed in the Cub Book. Some of them have little or nothing to do with scouting. This is done so that from the first days of scouting, a cub starts preparing himself for a future in or outside the Scout Movement.
As in any other movement, the Scouts Movement has a Promise, a Law and a Motto. These are to be followed by any Cub member to the best of his ability and in every moment in his life as ‘Once a Scout always a Scout’.
I Promise to do my best,
to do my duty to God and to my Country,
to help other people and to keep the Cub Scouts Law.
A Cub Scout always tries his best
Thinks of others before himself
Does a good deed everyday
Do Your Best
