The Cub Section
The 1st Winchester Scout Group has two Cub Packs, The
Celts and The Vikings,
and both packs run the same programme, although not always in
the same order, as recommended by the scouting movement.
Both packs do their camps and day trips together as well and at
the core of our programme lies the Cub Scout Law and Promise.
There is a very good description of what
Cubs get up to on the national Scout Web Site which is worth
By tradition, Cub Scouting has adopted some ideas from Rudyard
Kipling's "The Jungle Book". Indeed until 1967
the section were known as Wolf Cubs. Some of these ideas
are still adopted by the Cubs section today which explains the
name given to leaders: Akela, Baloo and Bagheera.
