Pack Information
The Wolf Cub program is based on Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book".  It provides a sense of outdoor adventure and fantasy that appeals to a Cub's imaginative mind. The "pack" refers to all members in your child's Cub program. Within the pack, Cubs are broken into small groups called "Lairs".  Cubbing is built around a lively variety of games, crafts, music, storytelling, play acting, spiritual fellowship and the outdoors.

Cub uniform cost
The Cub uniform consists of a long sleeved shirt which can be purchased at the Scout Shop on Baseline Road in Ottawa. Although not required, there are other clothing available such as the short sleeved activity shirt and ball cap. The necker/scarf is provided by 1st Rockland.

Jungle Map
The Jungle Map for the Cub Scout Section depicts the six Program Areas of the Canadian Path as places to visit in the jungle, all inspired by the Cubs’ symbolic framework of The Jungle Book. It’s important to note that for the Cubs Section, the Environment & Outdoors Program Area is divided into two places to visit on the map: Bagheera’s Hunting Grounds for the Environment, and the Red Flower Camp for Outdoors. The Canadian Path is a balanced program that serves Scouts Canada’s mission to develop wellrounded youth, better prepared for success in the world.

Personal Achievement Badges
Personal Achievement Badges provide opportunities for youth to pursue their own personal interests on an individual basis. They are structured to recognize existing knowledge or interest in an area and to challenge the Cub Scout to pursue further experiences. Badges acknowledge the Cub Scout’s achievements in the pursuit of those interests. There are sixteen Personal Achievement Badges. When having adventures in an area, the Cub Scouts may be motivated to follow through on their personal interests connected with the area. They may also work on achieving any Personal Achievement Badge, regardless of the Program Area they are currently exploring. Scouter, you may help make a connection for a Cub Scout and a specific Personal Achievement Badge that may be of interest. Personal Achievement Badges are completed solely at the discretion of the youth. They are meant to support and encourage the personal interests that contribute to the personal journey of each youth. While you (as a Scouter) can encourage Cub Scouts, don’t pressure them.  Here is a diagram for badge placement on the Cub's uniform.

Outdoor Adventure Skills
Outdoor Adventure Skills are important skills associated with Scouting. Nine areas of skills are part of every Scouting Section, from Beaver Scouts to Rover Scouts. Each of the nine skills is defined in nine progressive stages. Outdoor Adventure Skills are learned in the completion of adventures. For example, youth on a winter camp can achieve several objectives in several Outdoor Adventure Skills, such as Winter Skills, Emergency Aid, Camping and Scoutcraft. Cub Scouts will recognize their personal development in these skills. The Outdoor Adventure Skills accomplished by the youth depends on both individual and Cub Pack factors 

Each Cub learns a promise, law and motto to help guide their personal development.

Wolf Cub Promise:
I promise to do my best
To love and serve God, to do my duty to the Queen;
To keep the law of the Wolf Cub pack,
And to do a good turn for somebody every day.
Wolf Cub Law:

The Cub respects himself/herself.

Do Your Best
