Cubs who do not attend regularly lose out by not having the opportunity to complete their badge work. Their attendance patterns have a detrimental effect on the rest of their Six and can create problems for the leaders in organising activities. They are also depriving another child of a place in the Pack. Our group has a long waiting list for Cubs.
Any Cub who misses four consecutive weeks without contacting the leaders with a valid reason (principally illness) will immediately forfeit their place in the Pack. Further, any Cub who misses 6 or more weeks in the term, again without a valid reason, will be asked to leave the Pack at the end of term.
