  • A Cub Scout is a member of the section of the worldwide Scouting movement for young persons, mainly boys normally aged 8–10. Originally, like the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouting was for boys only; girls were expected to join the Brownies and then the Girl Guides or Girl Scouts. Since about 1990 the Cubs has been open to both girls and boys in several countries. In the USA, it is exclusively open for boys to join.
