There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like team games, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform. Cub Scouts also get to go on trips, days out and sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack. This means sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.  Click on the links to find out more about Cubs at the 8th West Wickham.
