“I promise that I will do my best; To do my duty to God and to the Queen; To help other people; And to keep the Cub Scout Law" – The Cubs Promise

We run two Cub Packs at Randwick Scout Group – one on a Wednesday evening and one on a Friday evening. Each pack is run by a Leader who is supported by parent helpers. Our Leaders plan and organise a varied and exciting programme of termly activities.

Cubs are encouraged to participate in a range of outdoor pursuits, community activities and exciting experiences. Challenge awards and badges are gained to recognise their achievements, plus they have the opportunity to attend camps and residential trips.

Despite lockdown Cubs have still been engaging in scouting activities…

We have been holding weekly online meetings, with a regular number of Cubs now attending. During the first week, we held a forum during which the Cubs suggested activities that we could cover. This included an egg drop – uncooked eggs had to be wrapped items from their recycling box and then thrown out of an upstairs window. Many of the Cubs completed this activity and we all enjoyed watching the resulting videos.

We have covered badges such as Animal Carer, Physical, Recreation and Collector as well as playing games such as bingo and going on a scavenger hunt. The Cubs talked about acts of kindness that they had carried out during Mental Health Awareness week. One of the Cubs made Welsh cakes as a thank you to his aunt. Subsequently, the Cubs were set the challenge of making Welsh cakes, which many of them achieved.

Some of the Cubs are continuing to work on badges at home and then sharing photographs and videos as evidence. Each week, we have been showing these to the Cubs, hopefully to inspire them to do the same.
