Cub Scouts Birmingham

Cub Scouts

Cub Scouting at the 1st Sheldon caters for children of 8yrs up to 10 1/2 years old.

This section gives the children a wider scouting experience, and our programmes are designed to back that up through everyday adventure.

The children are encouraged to develop teamwork skills, in Sixes and  they also undertake some simple leadership responsibilities, such as assisting other children to fit in, and have some say in what they are planning to do.

Our leaders are very experienced with children of this age group and are able to encourage the children to challenge themselves in a very positive way.

The children undertake a programme of structured badgework based upon effort and personal achievement, culminating in a Chief Scouts Silver award, which is usually attained just before moving to Scouts.

Our aim is to help the children develop as resposible young people who are ready to enjoy the next stage of their scouting adventure with the Scouts.
