Welcome to 1st Shiremoor Cubs


1st Shiremoor Cubs is open to boys and girls aged between 8 and 10 1/2.


We aim to provide a fun range of activities which give the Cubs a chance to run around,  learn interesting things, do activities in groups and on their own, play sports and games, make things, visit new places, meet other Cubs, go on group and district camps, earn badges etc.  and we aim to do all this in the spirit of friendship.


We meet at Holystone Primary School on Monday nights 6:30pm - 7:45pm within easy reach of Holystone, Shiremoor and Backworth.

Currently we have 35 Cubs and we try to get to know them all as individual characters. Our Cubs will always receive credit for trying activities whatever their ability.


To find out more about Cubs in general and the badges that can be earned please see the following link from the Scout Assosiation website https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/search/?cat=12


Scouting is reliant on volunteers so we are always keen to meet adults who would like to help us develop our young people in any of our Scouting sections.

The Cub Programme

Fun, fun, fun!

Last year cubs enjoyed handling creatures and mini beasts with the Zoo lab and joined the Beavers when the a local fire engine came to visit.  They have got creative finger painting, making chalk firework pictures and Mothers' day cards.  They loved watching the police drug dogs show off their skills.  They have enjoyed a variety of camps including an athletic camp at Dilston with the District.


They have also enjoyed getting out and about with a bowling evening, a night walk at the Rising Sun and the fun and games at the Shiremoor Adventure playground.


Cubs also enjoyed the challenge of working towards badges at home including the Home help & Home safety activity badges.
