The cub scouts, ages 6-10, are organized in a pack (gathering of wolves) and then in flocks of 6 elements. Their mystic is based in the Christian spirit of S. Francis of Assisi and in the experiences of “The jungle book” by Rudyard Kipling. Our cubs live their activities in the symbolic framework of the jungle book and with the guidance of S. Francis of Assisi. The color that identifies them is yellow that represents the golden sun, symbol of Jesus Christ. To the sea scouts the colors of the scarf are: blue from the sea, and also yellow.
