Wolf Cubs


Wolf Cubs were introduced by Lord Baden-Powell in 1916. They were an addition to Scouts which started nearly 10 years earlier. Baden-Powell created Cubs because the younger brothers of the Scouts kept pestering their siblings, by saying that they wanted to join in the fun and excitement too.

The concept of Wolf Cubs was originally trialled as junior scouts with a programme rather like that of a watered-down Scout programme but then became Wolf Cubs giving Cubs their own identity and programme.

Wolf Cubs is for boys aged between 8 and 11 years and is based on a book called ‘The Jungle Book’ by Rudyard Kipling.

The programme, although very different to that of the Scouts, starts the Wolf Cubs on a trail to learning all the Scouting skills needed for their future life in the Troop.
