Cubs

Cubs are young people aged between 8 and 10½, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.


Activities

During their time in the Pack, Cubs will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting.

There are a range of badges available which Cubs can wear on their uniforms to show everyone how well they're doing.

Cubs also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes they will be able to go camping with the rest of the Pack and take part in all kinds of outdoor activities.


Structure and organisation

A Pack of Cubs is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.

As face-to-face Scouting is currently suspended the 9th Kenton Beavers, Cubs & Scouts have been busy by taking the opportunity to draw pictures to send off to brighten the walls of the new NHS Nightingale Hospital at the ExCeL Arena. 
They have also been colouring thank you posters to display in their front windows to thank local NHS & Key Workers for all that they are doing to keep the UK going during this uncertain time. We have already seen some lovely drawings & look forward to receiving many more.

Summer Camp 2019 - Paccar Scout Camp
17/07/2019 By Keith Savage
 
This camp was planned well over a year ago.  It is the first time that we have camped at PACCAR Chalfont St Peter and we wanted to make sure that everything was just right for the young people to have a thoroughly enjoyable time at camp. PACCAR have spent a lot of money on new activities in the past couple of years and we wanted to take advantage of those exciting activities for our young people.  We had 25 young people at camp with us with nine Adult Leaders. 
 
The weather in the week preceding the camp with horrendous and even on the Thursday before camp contingency plans were being made just in case the weather remained wet and dismal.  As it turned out, apart from some rain on Saturday afternoon and again very early on Sunday morning, the camp was dry and everybody enjoying the sunshine when the sun shone. 
 
Those young people that attended had exciting and adventurous activities and a thoroughly enjoyable time from start to finish -  they started on the Friday evening with the Adventure Trail through to them zooming down a 180m twin zip wire, abseiling down from the top of a high tower and facing the Gladiator Challenge on the Saturday to rifle shooting, archery and crate stacking which took place on the Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  As you can see from the photos the young people had a fantastic time. 
 
The young people were all thoroughly well-behaved and helped to put away the tents, which luckily dried after the rain on Sunday morning, in bright, sunny, warm weather.  The campsite was cleared of all rubbish and everybody went home exhausted but exhilarated by another exciting 9th Kenton Cub and Scout camp. 
 
A camp like this doesn’t come together by itself and I would like to thank all of my fellow Leaders for their help in the numerous planning meetings, reccy visit, shopping trips, food order placement, cooking, cleaning, tidying up and looking after all of the young people over the weekend.  We really couldn't run a camp like this without the help and support the whole give and I would like to thank each and every one of them for making this a truly unforgettable camp for the young people.

As they returned from their Farm to Folk visit our Assistant Cub Scout Leader, Khushali Patel, arrived at Priestmead with the Cricket County Championship Cup which had earlier in the year been won by Middlesex County Cricket Club.  Khushali has a close affiliation with Middlesex & was bringing the cup for the Cubs to see before showing it off at a Woman’s Cricket training event.  As you can see the Cubs certainly liked getting their hands on this unique trophy.
 
Many thanks to Khushali for thinking of the Cubs & allowing them this privilege.

Farm to Folk Badgework trip - November 2016
26/08/2017 By Keith Savage
As part of our autumn term food related badgework the Cubs went to the Tescos Superstore in Watford to complete their Farm to Folk badge.  After a safety talk & an introduction to staff the Cubs were set a number of tasks to complete around the store.  They saw a demonstrations on fileting fish & other related works required to obtain the badge.  After a tour ‘behind the scenes’ to see how the store operates the Cubs were invited to sample a number of different foods & drinks.
 
All of the Cubs thoroughly enjoyed their evening & each of them came away with a goodie bag from Tescos.  All of these attending received their Farm to Folk badge later in the term.

On Sunday the 12th March all three sections from the 9th Kenton Scout Group took part in the annual District five a side competition at the Harrow Leisure Centre.  Beavers entered two teams, Cubs three & Scouts two teams.  All did really well with the Cubs team reaching the final of their competition & the two Beaver Teams going one step further & facing each other in the final.  Rohan Ruda did really well as he was awarded Cub player of the tournament.
 
As you can see from the photos everybody looked great in their 9th Kenton football kit & the Beavers & their Leaders looked really proud as they held up the Reg Styles Cup that they had won.
