Irrespective of a member’s age, a young person in the Movement is a ‘Scout’. The balanced Programme spans the 6-25 age range which is made up of five Sections. Each Section has its own identity, ethos and style. They all have adult support that varies in style across the different age groups.

A Cub Scout Pack has members aged 8 – 10 ½ Years.
