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.
Cub Scouts on Mersea
There are two cub packs, running on a Monday and a Tuesday. One is called Khaniwara the other is Seonnee. These names and often the Leaders names are inspired by Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book"
Kanihwara's Leader is known to the cubs as "Akela".
