We learnt about our Solar System, the planets, satellites, comets, asteroids, stars and much more! Although many of the Cubs had a good understanding of some parts of space, so we got to expand our learning about the Mars Mission with SpaceX and why we have observatories in specific locations. Finishing off the night the Cubs took to the screen and helped to create another picture, again their talents never cease to amaze us!
Each Cub had looked after a pet and learnt how to care for a new animal.
One of the Cubs even managed to convince her dad (with mums help) to get a hamster which was swiftly named ‘Sparkles’! Over the course of the two months, 2 lovely dogs also became family members to two other Cub households.
The virtual meetings and activities finished off with a brain storm for getting a pet Crocodile! And creation of posters promoting Animal Safety… I think you’ll agree with us, they did a fantastic job!
These are some challenging days and it’s the children like you who have led the way in helping to cheer us all up.
Have you been drawing and painting rainbow pictures to spread a bit of hope and cheer at this difficult time?
If so, please send in your brilliant rainbow pictures to [email protected] so we can share them with the group and make a massive rainbow collage to spread the hope message further. If you haven’t already done one, get creative and make one to add to the collage.
Do you have an hour to kill while your child is at a meeting night?
Can you spare 15 minutes at the beginning or end of a meeting night?
Are you wondering what to do some Sunday afternoons?
If you’re interested in volunteering some of your time then drop in and see what it’s all about! We’re looking for Parents who would like to get involved but don’t know where to start or even what to do! Everybody has a skill or a strength that we are looking for. All that’s missing from our Scout Group is you.
The cost of this camp includes Transport, food, camp fees and activities. An exciting weekend camp at Beaudesert Scout Camp in Staffordshire on the edge of Cannock Chase. We will be camping in tents and cooking on wood fires and gas stoves.
The activities will include traditional camp activities such as widegames, tracking, backwoods cooking & campfire. We will also be enjoying some adventurous activities based on the site.
The cost of this camp includes transport, food & boat hire. Scouts taking part on this weekend will be living on, crewing and operating a 12 berth narrowboat on the canal system around Rugby. They will be helming the boat, operating locks, cooking meals in the galley, learning how to maintain the boat and so on. This really is a hands on, active weekend.
There are only 8 places available on this activity.
This is one of the best camps ever for all Explorers, just ask one of the lucky Explorers who
attended last year!
The cost of the camp includes transport, food & all activities.
So what do the organisers say about this event?
Main Event – constantly evolving…
You told us that you want a challenge, preferably one that is a surprise each year, so that is what we aim to deliver. Obviously, it is really hard to describe a surprise, so what can we tell you? We have a 3,000 acre site and surrounding land to set a dynamic route of between 10 and 30 miles, and a crack team of volunteers from across the country to make it happen! Who knows what this year will hold, all we do know is that the Evolution main event will be brilliant fun and test your teams and individual physical, mental and Scouting skills.
The Rest of the Weekend
With Friday and themed Saturday night entertainment – including a DJ live bands and traditional fairground games and inflatables – there will be lots to keep you entertained!
