Wolf Cubs started in 1916. Now known as Cub Scouts, they are girls and boys between the ages of 8 and 10½. They meet together in a Pack, which may have from 6 Cubs up to a maximum of 36, under the guidance of a Cub Scout Leader, or Akela.
Telstar has two Cub packs – Mowgli which meets on Tuesdays and Baloo Pack which meets on Thursdays.
Most Packs organise Cubs into Sixes. Sixes usually consist of around 6 Cubs with a Sixer in charge and a Seconder to support them.
The Sixers and Leaders may get together occasionally for a Pack Leadership Forum, which gives the Cubs a say in the running of the Pack.
Each week there is a Duty Six which is responsible for tidying up at the end of our meeting.
The Scout Association has a continuous training programme that aims to promote the growth and development of young people from 6-25.
As well as games, Cubs do numerous activites, many of which can count towards badges.
WHEN DO WE MEET?
Mowgli Cub Pack meets every Tuesday at St George’s International School 18:00-19:30
Recent activities include cycling around the Kiss and Fly at St George’s and backwoods cooking at Thillsmillen.
We will be working on the Emergency Aid and Entertainer badges next.
Recent happenings at Baloo Cub Pack…
We did a variety of activities and Badges…..
Emergency Aid training with Sonia Alvarez from the Lux Ambulance.
Then we brought in our Collections and discussed them. There were some amazing collections ranging from old coins to Skylanders!
And for our DIY Badge we made Pin Boards out of old wine corks. It was messy but satisfying.
The big news at Baloo Pack is that Caroline Markey has taken over as Akela. We have also been joined by Dorothy (Baloo) and Frieder (Chucundra). Happy Scouting!
