Shipham Cubs could fold if organisers do not find more boys to join the group and another leader to help out.
The pack, which is holding its first meeting after the summer break on Monday, has only got six members and leader Helen Ingleby is afraid that if more people do not sign up they may have to close.
She said: "We really want more cubs. Our numbers have never been so low. A couple of years ago we had 24 on the waiting list.

"We will be reviewing the situation later in the year but we can't run it with just one leader.
"Youngsters don't think it's very fashionable any more and things like football and computer games have taken over. It's a real shame."
