Introduction to Cubs

Scouting is one of the great success stories of the last 100 years. From an experimental camp for 20 boys on Brownsea island in 1907, it has spread to 216 countries and territories, with an estimated 28 million members.

Cubs is the second section of the Scouting movement, originally started in 1916 for younger brothers who wanted a ‘look-in’. Over the past century, the section has constantly evolved and adapted its programme and methods to meet the changing needs of each generation of young people, and these days admits girls as well as boys.

Having celebrated our 100th Birthday in 2016, we are now looking forward to a new Century of fun, opportunities and challenges within the Cub Section and Packs within Petersfield District will be working to deliver the adventure.
