Cubs will participate in various events and activities, and can work towards over thirty activity badges, six staged activity badges and seven challenge badges, all which follow a balanced programme based on the six zones detailed below. Once Cubs have completed all seven challenge badges, they are awarded the Chief Scout’s Silver award. The events calendar will detail forthcoming activities which have been arranged for the 150th Glasgow Cubs.
Beliefs and Attitudes
This zone provides opportunities to explore and develop Scouting values, personal attitudes and a range of beliefs.
This zone helps Cub Scouts explore the community in which they live, discovering local people, places and facilities. It also gives them the opportunity to offer help and service.
This zone focuses on activities to improve fitness, promote personal health and increase awareness of personal safety. It should provide young people with the opportunities to participate in a variety of games and to improve their skills in a range of physical pursuits.
This zone provides opportunities for young people to display their creativity through art, music, drama, design, worship and leadership.
This zone helps Cub Scouts to discover the similarities and differences in lifestyle, cultures and environments, both locally and from around the world. It helps them make a difference.
Outdoor and Adventure
In this, the largest zone, are all the activities connected with camping and the great outdoors. This zone is full of opportunities to learn not just the traditional Scouting skills associated with hiking and camping, but also those needed for other adventurous activities.
A Balanced Programme will draw ideas from each of these areas over time. This may take the form of an event or activity, or working towards a specific activity badge or challenge.
