Cub Scouts (Ages 8-10)
Challenging hikes, weekend camps, and an introduction to water activities like canoeing or kayaking are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy.
With the Cub motto of "Do Your Best" front and centre, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities. Learning important first aid skills, paddling a canoe for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.
Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves and work as a team – and most importantly have a lot of fun!
The Cub Scout program focuses on six activity areas: The Natural World, Outdoors, Creative Expression, Healthy Living, Home and Community and Canada and the World. Activities include:
Challenging hikes, weekend camps and outdoor activities
Water activities like canoeing and kayaking
Games and sports
Music, storytelling and play-acting
CUB SCOUT PROMISE
I promise to do my best,
To be true to myself, to do my duty to the Country;
To keep the law of the Wolf Cub pack,
And to do a good turn for somebody every day.
CUB SCOUT LAW
The Cub respects the Old Wolf,
The Cub respects himself/herself.
CUB SCOUT MOTTO
Do Your Best.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE SKILLS (OAS)
The Outdoor Adventure Skills program is an invitation for Scouts to try something new—to be outside more, testing themselves with progressive challenges while remaining within their capabilities to stay safe. In short, it’s about having life-changing experiences.
Each Outdoor Adventure Skills pathway is divided into nine stages with a badge awarded for each stage; however, the purpose of the OAS program is not the badge. Rather, the Outdoor Adventure Skills should be seen as tools to support the Plan-Do-Review process—for example, organizing an activity that matches the level of skills that the participants have, or evaluating the amount of growth a person experienced in a particular skill set they wanted to expand on.
PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT BADGES (PAB)
As Cubs, we explore the Jungle with help of characters and settings from The Jungle Book. Explore the Program Areas as you learn more about the different Personal Achievement badges you can earn as a Cub.
PERSONAL PROGRESSION BADGES (PPB)
The Canadian Path is all about developing well-rounded individuals by encouraging youth to participate in a wide range of activities. Scouting is not about collecting badges. The badges of The Canadian Path are used to celebrate the personal journey of youth in Scouting. They mark the milestones of the journey and celebrate youth achievements. Working on Personal Progression Badges allow youth to further develop individual interests and skills, allowing their development along The Canadian Path to be recognized as part of their growth and progression.

Meet the Pack Scouter Team
Scouter Tobiah (Akela)
Since 2013, Tobiah has been volunteering with 15th Lethbridge as a Scouter, but he has been involved with summer camps for over thirty years as a camper, camp counselor, and counselor trainer. Tobiah has tons of experience and ideas about exploring nature, camping, music, and art- his campfire songs are quite a spectacle! Tobiah is also a teacher, and he has taught learners of all levels from kindergarten to adults. He works for Alberta Health Services creating online learning. Fun facts: Hawkeye plays the guitar and banjo, and even makes his own cigar box guitars! He is an avid geocacher. Tobiah loves to search for travel bugs and log caches while travelling with his boys. They have even planted a couple geocaches of their own around Lethbridge.
Scouter Moira (TicTac)
Moira enjoys her day job as a Registered Veterinary Technologist at the University of Lethbridge, but she has FUN in Scouting. Her journey with our Beaver Colony started in 2012 with her asking a simple question of “What does it take to be a Beaver Scouter?”. Since then, she has been very involved with the Colony and Group - and has enjoyed every minute of it (possibly because she secretly dreamed of being a teacher and is a bit crazy about organization). In her spare time, Moira likes to geocache, cook and spend time with (in no particular order) her hubby Nathan, son Alex and dog Tsunami. Fun facts: Before becoming a Scouter, the last time she slept in a tent (or went camping) was in Brownies! Moira has recently learned how to shoot a bow and arrow and has discovered that she really enjoys archery!
