Ages 8-10 (Grades 3-5)
Hikes, weekend camps and water activities (like canoeing and kayaking) are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy. With the motto “Do Your Best”, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and exciting activities, including STEM projects and cultural experiences.
Do Your Best
The 1st Glenayre Cub Pack meets Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm, in the Glenayre Community Center at 492 Glencoe Drive in Port Moody.
1st Glenayre Cubs have an action-packed annual calendar with many camps including a drive-up Skillz camp, winter camp, overnight backpack, and canoe camp. We also take part in many 1st Glenayre Group activities like a Halloween party, Link Camp, multiple social potlucks, a family camp, and a year end BBQ.

Outdoor Adventure Skills
The Outdoor Adventure Skills program has 9 skill pathways: Camping, Trail, Paddling, Aquatic, Emergency Aid, Winter, Vertical, Sailing, and Scoutcraft. Each skill is divided into nine stages with a badge awarded for each stage. The outdoor Adventure skills are progressive from Beavers through to Rovers, youth build on skill development as they move through the different Scout "sections" (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers.)
You can find out more about the Outdoor Adventure Skills here.
Parents: if you log in to your Scoutstracker account you can mark of skills your youth has completed outside of Scouts, so they get credit!
Personal Achievement Badges
Personal Achievement Badges are designed to allow youth to explore and expand skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them.
Personal Achievement Badges are strictly optional, but the cool thing is the youth decides what 3 challenges THEY want to do for their badge. The youth uses a planning template you can download here. Ideas for appropriate challenges can be found in the guide.
The "Top Section Award" for Cubs is the Seeonee Award. Cubs work towards their award with their Pack.
