Adventures in the Outdoors

Huntstown Cub Scouts meet once a week during school terms. At meetings they play team games and learn Scouting skills like hiking, camping, knots, first aid, cooking and more. The real adventure is in the outdoors – hill walks up mountains, treasure hunts, one, two or three night camps, litter-picking, parading on Saint Patrick’s Day and hostel trips. Children of this age love the outdoors. National events for Cubs include JamÓige – a big camp held every four years for Beavers and Cubs – and the National Cub Challenge each year. There are also lots of events run by the Scout County and Scout Province.

Frequently Asked Questions

Meetings take place on Tuesdays 7.15-8.45pm during school term time. Please ensure that cubs arrive and are collected on time. If you are going to be late collecting your child please let the scouters know. We may have to adjust the times to align with our programme activities in which case we will put the change up in the whatsapp group. All cubs should be brought into and collected from the foyer of Huntstown Community Centre unless otherwise notified. We request that parents remain with their child until the required ratio of leaders is available as cubs may have to be cancelled if leaders are unavailable.
