When a child joins Cubs they are known as a ‘Recruit’ until they get invested.

Before getting invested, the recruit needs to learn the essentials of Cub Scouting;

Our Pack has a copy of the Jungle Book DVD which you can borrow so you can learn the Jungle Story and understand the meaning of the names used in the pack. Do you know who ‘Akela’ is?

If you haven’t already been given one, you will need to complete and sign one of our information forms, which can be downloaded here:

When a Cub gets invested into the Pack, parents will be invited to join us for the cermony. Parents are welcome to bring their cameras so they can capture this special occasion.

This will be a good opportunity to meet the leaders, ask questions, and find out more about the Pack and our plans for the future weeks.
