Cubs


Cub Scout Promise

I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best, think of others before themselves and do a good turn every day.

1st Dunchurch Cub Pack Rules

  1. Cubs should remember the Cub Scout Law and Promise. 
  2. Cubs should take part in activities. 
  3. Cubs should play fair and must not cheat / spoil games. 
  4. Leaders and Cubs should listen to each other. Cubs should be quite while waiting in the circle. 
  5. There shall be no fighting / bullying. 
  6. No one should make fun of anyone else because of their colour, religion, abilities, disabilities. 
  7. Cubs are expected to come to meetings regularly and should call a Leader if they do not plan to attend a meeting on a specific week. 
  8. Full uniform shall be worn to and during every meeting unless a Leader specifically says it is not required. 

The Grand Howl

  1. Cub Scouts start by forming a circle, with Akela standing in the middle. Akela raises his arms until the Cubs are standing at alert. He then lowers his arms. 
  2. The Pack squats down like the wolves did and call out:"Akela, we will do our best!" (Kipling said it should be shouted as A-KAY-le, stressing the middle syllable)
  3. The Duty Sixer then stands at alert, salutes Akela and says "Cubs! Do your best!"
  4. The rest of the pack then stands and salutes, saying "We will do our best!"

Behaviour Policy

At 1st Dunchurch we work hard to provide varied activities and opportunities for gaining badges and new experiences. To ensure that Cubs runs smoothly we expect a certain level of behaviour and conduct.

As part of our behaviour scheme we run a points chart to reward good behaviour. Points are awarded for:

  1. Polite and helpful behaviour
  2. Good leadership
  3. Teamwork
  4. Winning in team games

At the end of the year the cub with the most points will win a small prize.

We also run a white woggle system for bad behaviour.

  1. Cubs are given a white woggle for:
    • Rude or disruptive behaviour.
    • Dangerous behaviour
    • Fighting
    • Bullying (including name calling)
  2. Receiving 2 white woggles in a term and the cub will have to miss a night.
  3. Receiving 3 white woggles in a term and the leadership team will have to seriously reconsider your child’s future at 1st Dunchurch Cubs.

We assume that cubs and parent have understood and agreed to these terms. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to speak to a member of the leadership team.
