Cubs – Everest pack (8 – 10½)

There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

Everest Report – November 2018

Before the summer the Scouts volunteered to give up their Wednesday evening to come and run an evening for the Cubs. The Scouts taught the children how to make paracord snakes. I must applaud the Scouts on their patience whilst teaching the Cubs the tricky technique needed! Thank you to Caroline, the Young Leaders and Scouts who delivered this fun craft project. I can tell you that all the Cubs couldn’t wait to play with them!

The Cubs enjoyed an evening of rifle shooting which was a new experience for some of them! After every turn the Cubs couldn’t wait to add up their score to see if they had scored higher than previously. And they did! By the smile on their faces it was obvious they were all proud of themselves and enjoyed the activity. Thank you to Reg and Richard for organising and leading the rifle shooting. You never know, there may be some trophies in the near future!

Our end of term event was a picnic at the park with all the Cub families. Thank you to everyone who came. It was great fun! This was also the last evening for some of our Cubs Kyle, Josh, Lucie, David, Thomas, William and Dexter. They have been great Cubs and hopefully one day Leaders! We wish them all the best on their next chapter.

Many of you know that Megan has moved away and therefore won’t be able to help us at Cubs anymore. Megan has been part of 1st Tolworth from when she was a Beaver all the way through to achieving her Wood Badge beads and Queen’s Scout Award. Megan is a valued part of the team and will be very much missed. We wish you all the best of luck in your next adventure and you are always welcome to come back and visit us.

As you may know by now Julie and Reg are stepping down from their duties as Cub Leaders. However, I can assure you their other roles in Scouting are going to be keeping them very busy behind the scenes, so you will still see them around. They have both done a huge amount for 1st Tolworth over the years from running exciting Cub evenings, teaching Scouting skills, camps, family camps and so much more. A big thank you to them both for providing many children over the years the opportunity to explore new experiences and create long lasting memories and friends. There is also one more thank you to give and that is to Tina although 1st Tolworth have never been able to convince her to put on the uniform! As well as helping at Cub evenings and camps Tina has done a tremendous amount of work for the Pack behind the scenes, organising paperwork and finances.  The list goes on! A massive thank you to all three of you from everyone past and present.

That leads me on to introducing myself and Craig as your new Cub Leaders! We are looking forward to the year ahead and all the fun activities we have planned for the Cubs.
