Cub Scouts


Cub Scouting is a fun and adventurous programme for young people aged 8 to 10 years of age. The Irish word for Cub Scout is Macaoimh and this is normally used in the Group. Macaoimh are encouraged to work, play and grow together through a programme of games, crafts, nature study and adventurous activities in the outdoors which are designed to match the vivid imagination of young people of this age. Both our Macaoimh Packs offer an excellent range of activities and experiences to their members and participation in them continues to provide a great introduction to the world of Scouting.

Our Programme consists of a meeting once a week (on Monday or Tuesday) from 7.30 to 9.00pm at our Den in Stephen Street. There is also day activities, visits and occasional weekend activities. Over the past year these have included hikes in the Comeragh Mountains, weekends in Faithlegg and Dublin, visits to Waterford Airport, Waterford Crystal, the Garda station and the Fire station.
