Cubs from across Bath celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouts

13 September 2016

31st-green-sixThe Cubs, aged between 8 and 10 years old, have been enjoying a programme of special activities to celebrate, including a trip to the cinema to watch the Jungle Book with over 250 of the Cubs joining in as well as various challenges and a limited edition badge.

As part of the celebrations, the Cubs also took part in a birthday cake competition.  The huge number of entries were judged by Laura Peck, District Scout Youth Commissioner, who said “all of the designs were very sweet and very clever at depicting the Cubs favourite activities but my favourite designs were from the 31st Cub Pack.”

The Southdown based Cubs won a £25 gift voucher to spend at the Scouts shops on new equipment for their winning entries.

Cub Scouts, who are the second section of the Scout Groups, all have the opportunity to take part in outdoor activities, to be creative, explore the local community and to experience the excitement of camping and nights away.

The number of Cubs in Bath has grown dramatically since launching in 1916 and Bath Scouts are currently looking for additional adult helpers in all their Sections and for the new Groups opening at Odd Down and Freshford.  They are also keen to find adult support for a new Beaver Colony in Combe Down to help cut the Beaver waiting lists in the area.

31st-purple-sixLaura, who has been a volunteer for 8 years said, “Volunteering is flexible and very rewarding. There many ways adults can help and you do not have to be a parent or have previous Scout experience to join in. We welcomed everyone from friends to grandparents; anyone who can contribute to the enjoyment of young people, all are very welcome”.

If you would like to join the Cubs on their next adventure or find out more about becoming an adult volunteer, then get in touch here.
