About Cub Scouts

Welcome to Goodna Bear Pack!

We are an enthusiastic group of 20+ young boys and girls who love Cub Scouts. Our motto is to have 'FUN' whilst trying to do 'OUR BEST'. We do realise this does vary from child to child, however we run our Cub pack on a rotational base method allowing every child to have a go at each activity. We have found this encourages growth and avoids disappointment.

At each meeting Cubs take part in various activities including:

  • Badge work / Boomerang work
  • Handcrafts
  • Games
  • Singing
 

You can try out Cub Scouts 3 nights for free before making the decision to become invested. For more information please come along on a Monday night and have a chat to Leader Baloo (Mitchell) or Sue (Cassowary)

Badges

There are 34 achievement badges in 4 different categories:

  • Arts and Literature
  • Nature, Science and Technology
  • Sports and Recreation
  • Our World

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best.
To do my duty to my God,
and to Australia.
To help other people,
and to live by the Cub Scout law.

Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts are Loyal and obedient.

Cub Scouts do not give into themselves.

Cub Scout Prayer

Help us, O Lord
To serve Thee day by day,
To do our duty

To keep our Cub Scout Promise
And to rest,
Happy that we have tried
To do our best.
