Do you have a young person who is interested in joining the adventure with our active Cub Pack? Then please send us an email at cubs@heyfordparkscouts.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively you can call Elaine Robinson on 01869 232886.

Cubs meet between 6.15 – 7.45pm during school term time every Monday evening. A weekly Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors. Cub Scouts are able to go to Cub Scout camps or indoor Pack residential experiences and enjoy a variety of expeditions. Our Cub Section has gone from strength to strength and we currently have over 40 Cubs.

Cubs are encouraged to attempt as many badge activities as they are able. All Cubs are asked to achieve their First Aid, Personal Safety, Road Safety and Bicycle Maintenance. Our aims for the Cubs are to improve confidence, respect, good manners, and tolerance and build lasting friendships.

We try and take part in all the District and County events and activities that are on offer. We also have our own annual events, including the Conkerers Cup every October in which Cubs take part in a conker competition to win an engraved cup to keep. There is an annual maggot racing competition, which is very popular. There’s even a competition for those who bite their nails! This takes place every January until Easter when we find a winner from those who no longer bit their nails. In reality, as it is Easter every Cub will be receiving chocolate but they don’t know that!

Cubs also compete to win a Camper of the Weekend Cup at every camp (to keep). Cups are awarded at the end of the year for Cub of the Year and Sixer of the Year which included medals for the best six. Needless to say every Cub is very keen to win an award!
