Cubs is for any boys and girls between the of ages 8 & 10½ who want to have a fun time, make friends & learn new skills while earning badges.
The 50th has currently has one Cub Pack, Hawk Pack who meet on Monday evenings.
What Have We Been Up To?
In December our Cubs worked hard on their Entertainer Activity Badge, for this they had to learn five Christmas carols before performing them in a concert for their families. We finished off the year with a bowling party where everyone beat Akela. The Cubs worked incredibly hard packing bags at the local Tesco to raise money for the Group's new marquee.
What Are We Going To Be Doing?
In February our Cubs will be working on their Chef Activity Badge, for this they will be learning about food safety and hygiene, how to create a balance diet. They will learn how to prepare vegetables and meat for ready cooking, before cooking pancakes and a two course meal. They will also be able to go to the District Fizz Quiz.
During March our Cubs will be doing one of the Disability Awareness Activity Badge, which is a new one recently brought in. To gain this badge they will be learning what it is like to try and carry out every day activities with restricted or no eyesight and some simple phrases in British Sign Language. The Cubs will also meet a disabled lady and get to try some of the aids that are available and ask questions about living with a disability. The Cubs will have the opportunity to take part in the District Activity Hike at Buckmore Park as week and have an Easter Egg Hunt.
April is a short month due to the Easter Holiday, but our Cubs will still be busy as they look to gain their Home Help Activity Badge. They will be learning to do things like ironing, sewing, washing up, cleaning windows and cleaning a bathroom. They will be going to Belchamps Scout Activity Centre for a weekend to do the DIY Activity Badge. The Cubs will also be in Rochester for the annual St George's Day Parade and Service at the Cathedral.
