Cubs News – November 2014

  |   By

The Cubs have had a busy term, we started off when the nights were still light building fires and cooking twists on them and learning how to navigate with a compass.

They also learnt how to build a newmarket ballista and then had a competition to attack each other sixes castles.

12 Cubs attended our annual weekend camp, where despite the rain they had a great time.

The sixers forum came up with a sweet themed evening, which involved a sweet relay race followed by a spaghetti and marshmallow (blu-tac!) construction challenge, that proved exceptionally difficult!

The Cubs have also been working towards their Promise, Global and Community challenges, and I’m very pleased to report that in the coming months we will have a number of them achieving their Chief Scouts silver award.
