Our cub pack normally meets on a Monday evening in the Aghada parish hall between 7:30 and 9 pm. We are made up of boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 11. Cub packs are organised into “sixes”. We currently have 6 sixes which are: Swordfish, Dolphins, Clownfish, Sharks, Penguins and Sea lions.
Each six has a sixer (leader) and a seconder (assistant). The sixers and seconders meet once a month for sixer council. Here they help to plan, facilitated by the leaders, activities and events they would like to take part in.
The emphasis of cub scouting is to have fun while learning at the same time. We take part in a wide range of activities from water sports, camping, hiking, crafts and first aid to trips to interesting places such as the zoo and the fire station.
