Cub Scouts take part in lots of fun activities like camping, going on trips, playing games and making things. Cubs are aged from eight to ten and a half.
At 1st Bramhall we have a busy programme designed to give the Cub Scouts various experiences during the weekly meetings. These activities in many cases lead to earning badges through individual and team effort.
Recent meetings have included evenings such as ‘Less Mad, Less Bad and Not So Dangerous’ and ‘Den Building @ Lyme Park’.
In addition to the weekly meetings we have events for the Cub pack and where the Cubs can experience activities with the other sections (Scouts & Explorers) within the group and district. Such events have included ‘District Camp at Linnet Clough’, ‘Streetwise in Manchester’, ‘Bonfire Night & Fireworks Display’ and ‘Family Fun Day’.
If you are a parent of a Cub at 1st Bramhall visit Online Scout Manager and login to check for special events or notices of any changes in meeting times.
There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Cub Scout Section.
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Cub Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing several more ambitious tasks within the Pack or community. There are several challenge badges across several themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.
In addition, there are a few special badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Pack, or for time spent in the Scout movement.
Some activity badges are sponsored by outside companies, and these companies often provide extra exciting resource packs to help Cub Scouts towards gaining their badges.
You can also keep your young people motivated and recognise achievement with your own awards.
