Cubs

“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.

This term, we are trying to cover aspects of the Outdoor and Adventure Challenge badges. With this in mind, the Cubs completed a mini pioneering project by creating camp gadgets. The older Cubs also ran games as part of their Team Leader Challenge badge.

The next meeting was held on Rodborough Common, where the Cubs flew the kites that they had made. Wednesday’s meeting started in a hail storm but ended with glorious sunshine and sufficient wind to fly the kites. At the Friday meeting, six former Beavers were invested into Cubs ahead of the kite flying – the Cubs had to run around a lot in order to get their kites airborne.

The Cubs became Wombles for an evening where they cleared litter in the local area. We are hoping to complete further sessions in the future.

During the final meeting of May, the Cubs met at Penn Wood where they thoroughly enjoyed doing archery (many thanks to Paul for running the archery sessions on both Wednesday and Friday). The Cubs also planted trees, which was really challenging as the ground is extremely stony.
