‘The best part of Scouting is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24 degrees centigrade. Minus 24 more like!’

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’. In nearly a 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.

Cubs start at Age 8


Cub Leader

Sharon has been with the Group for over ten years and started with us working with the Beaver section for the first five years, before moving on to the Cub section where she is the Cub Leader. Sharon's previous experience came in the Guide movement, where she was a Brownie, Guide and Young Leader with the Brownies. We try not to hold this against her! As well as her work at 4th, Sharon also supports the training of new leaders in the District.


Assistant Cub Leader

Laura found us via our website and got in touch with an offer to help "a bit". Laura is now fully integrated into the team and supports Sharon in the running of Cubs. Laura has just celebrated 5 years as a Leader in scouting


Section Assistant

Heather supports Sharon in the running of Cubs. As with most Parent Helpers we "captured" Heather during a family camp and we have not let her go! We are really grateful for all the help and support she gives.
