Cub Scouts typically meet once a week during school terms. At meetings they play team games and learn Scouting skills like hiking, camping, knots, first aid, cooking and more.The real adventure is in the outdoors – hill walks up mountains, treasure hunts, one, two or three night camps, litter-picking, parading on Saint Patrick’s Day, hostel trips, and sometimes overseas trips.
Children of this age love the outdoors. National events for Cubs include JamÓige – a big camp held every four years for Beavers and Cubs – and the National Cub Challenge each year. There are also lots of events run by the Scout County and Scout Province.
