This is the second youngest level of Scouting, involving girls and boys, ages 8-10. (age determined by birthday landing in the same calendar year as registration, same as the schools, essentially Grade 3-5)
We are running Cubs, on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30pm, at the main
Agricultural Hall on the Binbrook Fairgrounds, and you may
register with us at any time.
(see our photo gallery on the menu to the left, to see some of the Pack in action!)
As part of our program, we use a structured badge system, to enhance the adventure. Details are here: Wolf Cub Stars and Badges
We are looking for folks 18+ interested in helping out, in addition to parent participation.
|For the 2016-2017 Season, the registration fee is $200.00 online,
$225 in person.
Scouts Canada collects this registration fee to cover insurance of
activities, camp management, admin, overhead, etc.
Many groups also ask youth to bring a weekly $1, $2, or even $5 or
so, as "dues", to pay for ongoing supplies. We don't do that.
Many do not realize it, but Scouting is not a government or agency funded program. We are self-supporting.
Cheques payable to: "Scouts Canada - 1st Binbrook Group", please.
This cost does not include the Cub uniform (link below), but it's not terribly expensive, and many times available second hand from families with older youth.
If you want to fill out the registration form at home, and print it off, follow this link. (it's a PDF document, but you can actually type on it, and then print it out!)
Or, you can register and pay online, via www.myScouts.ca
More information: (courtesy of our friends at 1st Whitby, who went to a lot of trouble to type it all in!)
Here is program the summary from the Scouts Canada Website:
|8 to 10 years of age.
Cubbing is built around a lively variety of games, crafts, music, storytelling, play acting, spiritual fellowship and the outdoors. The Cub program focuses around six activity areas:
Individual interests and skills are recognized through simple awards.
The outdoors is an essential part of the Cub program. Weekend events, hikes and overnight camping opportunities round out the Cubbing experience.
Cubs meet in a group called a pack. The pack is split into smaller groups called sixes. There is one leader for every six Cubs. Each Cub learns a promise, law and motto to help guide their personal development.
Wolf Cub Promise: I promise to do my best To love and serve God, to do my duty to the Queen; To keep the law of the Wolf Cub pack, And to do a good turn for somebody every day.
Wolf Cub Law: The Cub respects the Old Wolf, The Cub respects himself/herself.
Wolf Cub Motto: Do Your Best
Scouts Canada has prepared a grownup's guide to the Wolf Cub program for those who would like more information.
We also have a link in our resources section (menu on the left) to the 1st Whitby Cubs website, where they list out the Stars, Badges and Awards, that parts of the program are centred around.
