Cubs is held on Tuesday nights from 7pm til 8.30pm.
Welcome to Boys and Girls between 8 to 10 1/2 years old.
Costs £35 a term.
We think it is important to have a balanced programme with fun games and learning. Scouting helps to make young people more rounded individuals where they get to experience new things.
Most weeks you will find us in our scout hall playing games and completing a bit of badge work. This could be doing a craft based activity lilke designing their own flag or acting out a scene or learning about differerent cultures.
We like our cubs to achieve a few badges per year such as Artist, Home Safety, Faith and Entertainment. Here is a link to the scoutbase website for more details - http://www.scoutbase.org.uk/6to25/cub/badges/ Some cubs have given themselves personal goals to complete Book Reader, Equestrian and Martial Arts in their own time.
Every year we take our cubs on a week long Summer camp where they learn to work as a team, how to put up tents, build camp fires,tracking skills, play wide games and complete badges such as fitness and water activities. They also get to try climbing, abseiling and canoeing.
At the 6/12th we like to take our Cubs to new places. Over the years we have been to great places (at little cost). We have slept on the Golden Hinde, visited Tate Modern & Science Museum & been inside 10 Downing Street. We have also been to our local places of interest such as the Mosque in in Morden (largest in Europe), Mitcham Library, Mitcham Bowls club, a Jewish Synagogue, Church, Fire & Police stations. We also go to panto, Scout & Guide gang show, bowling, lazer quest and swimming!
We always attend district events (Badge & Adventure days). Our pack came 1st place in Handicraft competition in 2008 & 2nd place in 2012. We had high placings in sports day and swimming gala & runners up in Football. We also go to Gilwell's day out and went on the Scouting Centenary camp in 2007.
As you can see we have a fun packed programme which we could not do without such a great leadership team.
We look forward to hear from you.
