26th Halifax Cub Scouts

Cubs (Ages 8-10) for Halifax, NS.

img_20160921_1854492Cub Scouts is a section of Scouts Canada programs for boys and girls.

The youth meet in a group called a Pack, which is further broken down into Lairs (usually containing six Cubs). Each Lair has youth leaders called a Howler.

What we do

We plan and go on adventures. We visit places and have experiences that are out of the ordinary, from science, technology and creative workshops to rock climbing, exploring airplanes, navy ships, historic places and more.

Our pack learns about teamwork, collaboration, leadership and all kinds of interesting things in our STEM-based, outdoor-focused program. There are 4 key elements to our program, tailored for 8-11 year olds:

  1. Youth-led: The program is directed by its youth members—not the Scouters
  2. Plan-Do-Review: A three-step process informs all activities in the Canadian Path program.
  3. Adventure: Scouts explore new things, share new ideas, learn new skills and create new paths.
  4. SPICES: Social, Physical, Intellectual, Character, Emotional and Spiritual are the six dimensions of personal development for the Canadian Path program.

Our program’s goals

Learning skills
With the Cub motto of Do Your Best front and centre, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities, such as learning important first aid skills and outdoor survival skills at camp.

Personal development
Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves, work as a team, develop leadership skills – and most importantly have a lot of fun!

Our leaders

26th Halifax’s Cubs program follows Scouts Canada’s Canadian Path framework and is entirely delivered by a team of dedicated volunteers (called Scouters). Scouters  follow a youth-led approach to planning and executing the program so youth are part of shaping their experience. Member safety is our #1 concern at all times. Learn about becoming a Scouter.
