Youth members of the Association are organised in four sections depending on their age:


The Cub Pack is made up of boys and girls aged between 7 and 11 years. A Pack is made up of a maximum
of six teams of six members each known as sixes. The oldest member of the six is normally called a Sixer
and is responsible of the six. A Cub Scout Leader (or Akela) has the charge of the Pack assisted by one
or more adult leaders.

This programme covers different aspects such as:Scouting Skills, Scouting with nature, Health and Sanitation,
Physical Development (Sports and Exercises), Scouting Spirit, Spiritual Development, Citizenship, Education

Scout Section

The Scout section is for boys and girls aged 12 to 16. Scouts are organised in Patrols according to the
Scout method with each Patrol under the responsibility of one older and more experienced adolescent. The
