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.
Well here we are nearly in May!!!! How time flies when you’re having fun.
We hope to see everyone at the St Georges Day Parade on Sunday 28th April as we aim for 100% attendance.
We have been very busy at Cubs, working towards some of our badges, learning knots plus the usual fun and games. We also have lots are planned for the coming months.
We will be taking part in a range of activities including the Raksha Trophy competition, Water Fun Day, five a side football and not forgetting the much loved Sports Day.
As you know in March we took part in the Scooter Rally – below is a report from one of our cubs, Thomas W:
On Saturday the 9th of March, 7 of us from 1st Tolworth took part in the 2nd Malden Scooter Rally. It was me, Max, Isabella, Finley, Libby, Brandon and Ollie. We had to do as many laps as possible in an hour. We had to do a maximum of 4 laps each time before changing to the next person. When we changed person is was quite tricky because we had to transfer knee and elbow pads and do it quickly. All the adults helped! I was really good fun and at the end everyone was really exhausted, but really happy. Especially at the end when we got donuts. We didn’t win though, but we were really happy to take part. The next day my legs were really aching and I couldn’t go to athletics!
For our Easter treat we went bowling at Charrington Bowl, Tolworth. The top-scoring girl was Lottie, who scored 100, closely followed by Marcelina with 93 and then Libbie with 90. The top-scoring boy was Andrew with 104, followed by Harry with 101, and by Ollie with 96. The winners were presented with easter eggs. All the cubs were then given a chocolate egg and carton of juice. All in all a fun evening was had by all.
The Leaders have been busy working on Cub Camp. All the activities are now booked, the menus have been planned and the camp program has been put together. Now all we need is some sunny weather and to have loads and loads of fun.
As you may or may not know we usually have a weekend away during October. For this we have undertaken numerous adventures, visiting London Eye and sleeping on |HMS Belfast, Duck Tour, museum visits (RAF, Natural History & Science), sleeping in the bug house at London Zoo. Last year we attended the Lord Mayors Show and visited the Cutty Sark.
What to do this year, any ideas please let us know, a couple of suggestions so far have been a visit to Harry Potter World or a sleepover in the Natural History Museum. Get you thinking caps on and let us know your ideas.
