Hikes, hands on activities, and weekend camps are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy. Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities. Learning important first aid skills, skiing or snowshoeing for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.
Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves and work as a team – and most importantly have a lot of fun! Cub Scouts is manipulated from Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” – so many leaders names come from this, as well as many ceremonies and games. In Maxville we have an Akela, a Mang, an IKKI a Baloo and a Chil. Cub Scouts form a large Pack from which they are formed into smaller groups called “Lairs”, which used to be “Sixes”. Within each Lair there are leadership roles and Cub Scouts really start to develop their leadership skills.
In Maxville, we are also working towards synchronizing with the Canadian Path system, so some aspects of our program will be changing their name.
The Cub Scout program focuses on six activity areas:
Environment & Outdoors, Leadership, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship, Creative Expression and Beliefs & Values.
- Music, storytelling, and play-acting
- Games and sports
- Water activities like canoeing and kayaking
- Hikes, weekend camps and outdoor activities
Cub Scout Promise:
I promise to do my best, to love and serve God, to do my duty to the Queen, to keep the law of the Wolf Cub Pack, and to do a good turn for somebody every day.
Cub Scout Law:
The Cub respects the Old Wolf, the Cub respects himself/ herself.
Cub Scout Motto:
Do you best!
Cubs are expected to have the grey uniform for weekly meetings and camp ceremonies. They will be given their necker upon investment into the 1st Maxville Pack (once they learn their Cub Motto, Promise, and Law). They will also be given their Cub woggle at this point and be designated a lair. During their Investiture Ceremony they will also be given the Voyageur Council crest, the Odawa Area crest, and the Maxville Group crest. The link below is provided to show where they go on their uniform.
