The Cubs and Scouts had a fantastic time this evening canoeing, kayaking and Stand-up Paddle-boarding at The Anderton Centre. We're really lucky to have such a great water sports facility on our doorstep and the Cubs and Scouts are already looking forward to their next visit!
Coming up in July and August are two Sailing taster evenings for the Cubs so watch this space for updates about our budding sailors #skillsforlife
Scouting is youth led and several times a year the Cubs have a "Pack Forum" to discuss camps and activities they would like to prioritise. This evening we took advantage of the sunny weather and had a pleasant walk from White Bear Marina to Frederick's Ice Cream Parlour. The Cubs enjoyed a cornet in the sun and came up with some fantastic ideas, including:
Climbing wall / bouldering
Factory tour (industry / chocolate!)
A zoo trip
Football stadium tour
Skiing - Chill Factore
Dogs home - Dogs Trust
Food tasting night
Speed boat ride
A trip to Heysham Power Station
We'll certainly be able to incorporate some of these ideas into the programme next term so watch this space.
Also, making her debut appearance this evening, was Pip the Pup who is joining ASJ Cubs as an Assistant Leader! Pip works at a secondary school as a therapy dog and is a hypoallergenic breed, so is perfectly suited to the being a member of a Cub Pack. Pip will attend on suitable evenings throughout the year.
