The Cub Scout program is specifically designed to provide opportunities for children to develop and grow as individuals and as members of a team. Cub Scout activities are planned to cover a broad range of interests and topics to trigger their imagination and curiosity.

At Air Scouts Canberra, we run an active scouting program with a special focus on aviation and space. Through our activity programs we've learned about planes, helicopters, parachutes, model planes, quadcopters, hot air balloons and space shuttles.  

As a member of a 'Six' you and your Pack will work together to explore the world. Your Cub Scout Leader will help you along the way and encourage you to participate in Scouting activities. You'll learn life-long skills, participate in the Cub Scout's Award Scheme, earn badges, make friends and have fun!

Cub Scouts activities include:
★ Short camping trips
★ Outdoor activities
★ Water activities and water safety
★ Organising and playing team games
★ Learning practical skills like knots and construction
★ Going on bush walks and nature trails
★ Orienteering and learning to read maps and compasses
★ Aviation and space related activities

Our previous and current Term programs are available for download below - please note the Term programs are subject to change so please confirm with the Cub Leader before attending. 

We are currently seeking leaders and adult helpers to support our Cub Scout section, so please contact us if you are able to help out and get involved in an adult support role. 

Cub Scouts may commence transition (Link Badge) any time after their 10th birthday and have progressed to Scouts by their 11th birthday. 

Badges and the Award Scheme
The major components of the Cub Scout Award Scheme are the Bronze, Silver and Gold Boomerang badges. To earn each of these badges, Cub Scouts must complete at least ten challenges under the guidance of Leaders.  Cub Scouts can set challenges for themselves to earn Achievement Badges from the areas of Arts and Literature, Nature, Science and Technology, Sports and Recreation, and Our World. There are also a number of Special Interest badges. The Grey Wolf Award is the pinnacle of achievement in the Cub Scout Section. To earn the Grey Wolf Award a Cub Scout must hold a Gold Boomerang badge, participate in a minimum of four outdoor activities, plan and lead a bush walk, create a learning resource for their pack and meet other requirements. 

The Australian Scout Promise and Law provide a vision for everyone in the scouting movement to live by. 

THE AUSTRALIAN SCOUT PROMISE

There are two versions of the Scout Promise, either of which may be chosen by the individual.

On my honour, I promise
To do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law

OR 

(New version)
On my honour, I promise
To do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law
