Cub 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.
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:
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.
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!
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.
Cubs can join at any time throughout the year:
