Boys and girls aged eight to 10 years are invited to join Cub Scouts, who meet at Norlane West Scout Hall in Dunloe Avenue every Monday afternoon.

Cub Scouts focuses on exploring the outdoors, discovery and learning interesting things. Members belong to a Pack and begin to learn leadership and teamwork in small teams called Sixes.

Cub Scouts go bushwalking, on bike trips and camps, and learn skills including how to use a compass. They also have the chance to try things like sailing, canoeing and abseiling. The natural environment is at the heart of Scouting and there are activities aimed at developing knowledge of caring for the environment.

Cub Scouts have a Leader to help along the way and encourage members to participate. They also help create a fun place to learn, belong and be adventurous.

By joining in different activities and learning new skills, Cub Scouts can earn special badges to sew on their Cub Scout shirt and camp blanket. There’s something for all interests.

Cub Scouts from the Norlane West Scout Group attended the ANZAC Day march and service at the Norlane RSL. Several Cubs were proud to wear their Great-Grandfathers’ war medals. The following week at the Scout hall, the Cubs planted poppy seeds and learnt about their significance. They also learnt about the components of the Australian flag.

Boys and girls interested in starting their Scouting adventure can enjoy a free three-week trial. The group meets at Norlane West Scout Hall, 84-86 Dunloe Avenue, Norlane on Monday from 4.30-6pm.
