  • Cubs can choose from a wide range of activities, and they should get a say in what they do. All of your activities should be accessible for everyone.
  • Any activity based on being outside counts for requirement two - you can even do an activity indoors, so you can get stuck in whatever the weather.

January 2017.

Requirements can be adapted to suit each young persons abilities. See our guidance on flexibility.
