Motto

Be Prepared

Cub Scout Promise (Said at Investiture)

I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law

The Cub Scout Law (Said at Investiture)

Cub Scouts always do their best
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn every day.

The Cub Scout Code of Conduct

Have fun!

Play fair?
Listen to adults and each other
Be polite to other people
Respect other people and property
Stand still and Be quiet when the Leaders raise a hand
Keep out of other rooms of the Scout Hut
Keep away from the Playground during  Cubs

Opening Ceremony

On the leaders signal (raising and lowering arms), the Cubs squat down, hands between feet in a circle.
All Cubs: “Akela, we’ll do our BEST.”
Spring to feet
The Duty Sixer: Salutes “Cubs! Do your BEST.”
All Cubs: “We WILL do our BEST.”

The Leader will then ask the Pack to stand to attention

The Duty Sixer and Seconder will then walk to the flag whilst the rest of the Cubs are at attention, and break the flag, step back two paces and salute. The other Cubs salute at the same time. The Sixer and Seconder walk back to the circle and the Leader calls the Pack to ease.

Closing Ceremony

With the Pack standing in a circle, the Leader calls them to attention. The Grand Howl ceremony is repeated, then the duty Sixer and Seconder walk to the flag. The Sixer then lowers the flag and steps back two paces. They then walk back to the rest of the Pack and re-join the circle. The Leader will then dismiss the Pack

Investiture

Once your child has been coming to Cubs for a while and has his uniform they will be invested. They will stand in front of the Leader and either say the Cub Scout Promise and Law or repeat them after the Leader. They will be standing to attention and making the Scout sign as will the rest of the Pack. Their left hand will be placed on the flag

Sixes

The Cubs are split into four equal groups called Sixes. The sixes are denoted by a colour, red, green, blue and yellow. Generally the four oldest children will be Sixers and the next four oldest, Seconders. They are responsible for flag brake and keeping the rest of the Cubs in the Six in line as well as guiding them through activities.

Moving Up to Scouts

As with Beavers moving up to Cubs, the cubs are encouraged to go along to Scouts before they finally move up. When your Cub Scout is ready to move they will be asked what they have enjoyed about their time at Cubs and what they are expecting from Scouts. The rest of the Pack then cheers them off before the closing ceremony.
