What do Wolf Cubs Do?

Wolf Cubs get up to a really infinite number of activities and I will expand on this a little further down the page, but as with scouting in general the principle objectives are to educate the Wolf Cubs so that they can become not only a valued contributor and member of the Pack, but also as a good member of society and a citizen of New Zealand.

Often Cubs Pack concentrate on activities, ie abseiling, climbing etc etc but they often miss out on the core principles, that is to help the Cubs to improve in areas that are not covered by the schools everyday curriculum.
