Our Cub Section
The cub section consists of boys and girls aged between 8 and 10 ½ meeting Monday evenings from 7pm to 8:30pm.
Cubs have lots of fun, taking part in many outdoor activities such as climbing, canoeing and bell boating. Other outdoor activities include camping in tents overnight, cooking outside and taking part in outdoor games.
Cubs are able to earn badges by completing the requirements of a wide range of badges for instance personal safety, computing and map reading. Badges are worn on their uniforms.
As Cub leaders we try to provide a wide range of experiences for our Cubs.
What did the cubs do in 2017
The cubs took part in three camps at Kibblestone Scout camp and at our own Headquarters. During the camps the cubs helped to prepare and cook meals,making the best ham and cheese pizzas. The cubs made camp gadgets, built shelters and joined in with other cubs to play fun games.
We regularly took the cubs indoor climbing at Kilnworx, canoeing and bell boating at Trentham Lake and used our own archery equipment.
We took part in Jambowlree. A world ten pin bowling competition the cubs came first in the UK and third in the world.
The District organises various events our cubs took part in their fun swim, swimming gala and football competition.
Every year in October the cubs enjoy taking part in JOTI (Jamboree on the Internet) the cubs over the internet talking to cubs from all over the world from Australia, to Asia, Europe and America. The cubs must have talked to over a hundred scout groups during the day. An experience the cubs really enjoyed and unlikely to forget.
The cubs helped with community projects namely Party in the Park, Tunstall Carnival and the Remembrance Service in November.
We presented 277 badges during 2017 covering a wide range of areas from the Adventure Challenge badge, Artist badge, Chef badge, Disability Awareness badge, Hobbies badge, Home Help badge and Entertainers badge to name a few. The cubs really enjoy their badge work and more importantly receiving a deserved badge.
