Who are we?

Thor Cub Pack meet every week throughout the year with the exception of the Christmas and Summer holidays. We run an enjoyable and active programme, which aims to promote the growth and development of the young people. During the Summer months we try to use the outdoors as much as possible, making the most of the open space on the Beacon and around our Hut to play games, build pioneering and enjoy the fresh air. As the days get shorter, we move indoors, as well as doing badges, crafts cooking and practicing scouting skills, we like to keep active and often build assault courses or do team challenges.

What do we do?

Our weekly programme is based on the Scout Associations progressive balanced programme which is designed to give young people a broad skill set and learn about everything in the World around them. It includes a range of activities, events and experiences built around six programme zones. It also allows young people with different abilities to get fully involved in what we are doing. This is supported by the Cub Activity and Challenge badges, which are awarded when a young person completes a simple set of challenges, to find out about all the badges available to Cub Scouts you can visit this link.

We try to keep as busy as we can making the most of local facilities and events put on by the County or District Scouts. We often attend the County Cub camp at Nine Ashes Scout Campsite and the District Cub camp, which both give our members a chance to meet other like minded young people from around the County and take part in new activities. Also we like to attend the annual Figure of Eight walk run by Mid-Cornwall District, a two day challenge walk which those that attend all thoroughly enjoy.

Our programme takes on a more adventurous edge over those of the Beaver sections, moving towards more challenging and exciting activities such as kayaking, climbing and archery. We also take part in a lot more nights away, in addition to those listed above we head further afield for a week in the Summer, where Cubs enjoy on site adventurous activities, games and visits to locally attractions.

Why join?

Scouting provides the opportunity for young people to Make friends, try new things, learn, explore, make progress, work as part of a team and most importantly have fun.

Young people experience Scouting by regularly taking part in meetings, activities and events, by getting involved in as much as possible they will develop as individuals and members of the Community, while having fun and learning in a safe and secure environment. Personal achievement is recognised by earning awards and badges leading to the Chief Scout’s Silver Award, the highest award a Cub can get.

Who can join?

We welcome any young person between the age of 8 and 10½ to attend on a Thursday night and join the adventure. Scouting is an organisation that welcomes all backgrounds and abilities and we will try our best to accommodate any child no matter what their needs.
