Scouting Names

It is tradition in Scouting for the adult leaders to have different names.

In Beavers all the colonies have a name based on nature. The names of the colony leaders are animal names, which you may find out and about in the British Countryside.

In keeping with tradition, Cubs are all based on Wolf packs and the names of the leaders are characters from Rudyard Kipling’s famous story – The Jungle Book.
