Cub Scouts, aged 8-10 ½, belong to the second section of the Scouting movement and meet in Packs.  Cub Scouts work towards badges such as the Creative, Fitness, Outdoor or Community Challenge Badges. They earn these by helping to plan for a camp; learning new things, for example what it’s like to be a Cub Scout in another country; and discovering and mastering new skills by building trebuchets, bird boxes, and lighting fires. There is a huge range of activities for Cubs! At their meetings in their Group hut, on Ranmore Common and the Nower, or at their local park, they gain self-confidence and develop strong friendships.  In Dorking, Cubs camp under canvas, go for hikes up Box Hill, cook outdoors, and practice bicycle maintenance; participate in District events, such as a Forensics Science Day or a trip to Chatham Historic Dockyard; and attend county day events such as SCRAM.
