Cubs are with the group typically for three years and we aim to ensure that all cubs get the opportunity to cover a large range of activities whilst still having the opportunity of covering all of the key badges. Many of our cubs go up to the scout troop. The programme is split into three terms and are based at our home at Bancroft’s school. In the summer term the cubs get one or more taster sessions at Fairlop where they get the chance to do level one paddling badges.

A typical weekly programme for a year looks like this:
