are girls and boys aged 8-10½ years who form the second section in the Scouting family between the Beaver and Scout sections.
Cub Scouts meet weekly during term time to take part in activities from the Balanced Programme:
Outdoor & Adventure
Beliefs & Attitudes
An exciting part of being a Cub Scout is going on camp, sleeping in tents and taking part in new adventurous activities. Every Cub Scout should have the opportunity to take part in a nights away experience each year.
Cub Scouts belong to packs led by a Cub Scout Leader and work in teams called Sixes led by a senior Cub Scout called a Sixer.
Mersea Cub Scouts
There are two cub packs, one running on a Monday called "Khaniwara" and the other on a Tuesday called "Seonnee".
These names, and often the Leaders nicknames are inspired by Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book"
