Cub Programme for Autumn 2011

18 September 2011

This term at Cubs we will be continuing to work towards the Chief Scouts’ Silver Award
This is the highest award available in the Cubs section, and is gained by completing 6 Challenge Badges.  We will be spending evenings on:

  • Creative Challenge – including making posters about scouting and thinking up new games
  • Promise Challenge – finding out about other faiths, doing good turns and helping others
  • Outdoor Challenge – learning tracking and knotting skills, and trying new outdoor activities.

Other evenings will count towards Activity Badges, with swimming, cycling, cooking and science all featured.  Click here for more information about the badges.

And of course there will be games – plus a party at the end of term just before Christmas.
The Remembrance Day parade and service takes place on 13th November in the village.  1st Liss has the privilege of organising the District Carol Service on Tuesday 6th December.  We’ll be asking the Cubs for ideas for stalls they could run at the Liss Village Late Night Shopping evening on December 7th.

On December 18th we will join the Beavers and Scouts for bag-packing at Waitrose in Petersfield, our big fund-raising event.
We’re pleased to welcome Darryl Guy as a new assistant this term.  We’ll also need at least one parent / guardian to help at each meeting, and a rota will be circulated shortly.
