The Wolf Cub Pack (boys and girls ages 8-10) Outdoor Adventure


The Wolf Pack offers an exciting variety of creative activities to spark any Wolf Cub's imagination. Wolf Cubs are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities, promoting wholesome personal development.

Scouts Canada believes that children learn by doing. Wolf Cubs activities encourage children to discover and understand their world through play and adventure.

Becoming a Cub

Challenging hikes, weekend camps, and an introduction to water activities like canoeing or kayaking are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cubs enjoy.

With the Cub motto of "Do Your Best" front and centre, Cubs are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities. Learning important first aid skills, paddling a canoe for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.

Cubs also experience an exciting variety of other activities: games and sports, model-building, music, story-telling and play-acting. And like Beavers, Cubs enjoy their adventures with their friends.

Scouting is a family-based organization. Activities we offer, plus the value and skills we provide, are aimed at supporting your efforts to teach your child what is needed to become a well-rounded person. Your personal involvement is important to help reinforce the lessons your cub learns.

How Packs are organized

Wolf Cubs join teams known as Sixes, of 6 or more Cubs. A number of Sixes make up a Cub Pack and have a mix of older and younger Cubs. Sixes are led by a Sixer and an Second who provide leadership and guidance. Come and meet our Sixes, Sixers and Seconds of the Green (Wolves), Blue (Scorpions) and Pink (Bats) in the Wolf Pack.

"Akela" , the name of the old wolf, is the leader of the pack. Other leaders take a "jungle name" such as Bagheera (the panther) or Baloo (the bear). Your pack may also have a "Kim" -- a Scout who works with the Cubs. Kim is another Kipling character. Older Cubs are sometimes invited to work with a Beaver colony. Each Cub helper working in a colony is called "Keeo" after a character in the Beaver book Friends of the Forest.

After learning a bit about Cubs, your child will become ready to become "invested", or formally welcomed into the pack. You will be invited to attend the "Investiture Ceremony" to help welcome your child into the Cub pack.
