Cubs is the middle section and is for boys and girls aged between 8 and 10½. At 1st Martlesham we have an excellent Cubs section that has run for years. At 10½ years old the Cubs move on up to our Scout Pack.The Cubs do a lot of different activities such as games, crafts as well as working towards badges.

Cub report Autumn 2019

At our first meeting we asked all the Cubs to look at badges they would like to achieve for next term i.e. in 2020. Between them they chose a number of activity badges that we cannot run as a pack as most require a qualified instructor and/or at least three months activity e.g. Martial Arts, Water Activities etc. However, Cubs can always complete any of the badges in their time and let us know so that we can check the requirements (see https://beta.scouts.org.uk/cubs/activity-badges/) and award the badge when met/completed.

This term we are aiming to complete:

Backwoods Cooking
Disability Awareness – some work at home is required using the workbook sent home
Pioneer
World Faiths
Our World Challenge

We also gave the Cubs a choice of two possible outings over half-term and they chose overwhelmingly to go by bus to Ipswich Museum and the Ipswich Art Gallery. The final details, including the actual date, will be sent out as soon as we have them.

Similarly we will send out details of JOTA/JOTI and the Night Hike/Sleepover closer to the dates.
