The aim of the Pack is to provide all round training of spirit, mind and body.

This encourages self-control, obedience, alertness and self-confidence, sense of right and wrong, a natural curiosity, imagination and to respond to discipline and structure.

The Cubs will be asked to make the following Promise and Law:

I promise I will do my best, to do my duty to God and the Queen

To help other people and keep the Cub Scout Law

In addition to this the Cubs can achieve 37 Activity Badges from Air Activities, Chef, Road Safety and Water Activities.
