Cubs

We meet weekly at the Scout HQ in Saxilby. Boys and girls are accepted from seven and a half up to ten and a half (the normal transfer age from Beavers to Cubs is just prior to the Beavers eighth birthday).

We deliver a varied programme including craft work, badge work, themed games, outdoor activities  etc.

Activities and Programmes

We are an extremely active group at Saxilby and manage to get through a lot of activities and badge work throughout the year.  Our weekly meetings concentrate on badge work, games and crafts.  We also run various activities outside of the weekly meeting to build on this.  This includes aiming to run at least one camp every year (this year we did two!).

Just some of the things we have done in 2015…

We visited Whisby Nature Park for a spot of bird watching.  We held a summer camp at Walesby Forest.  We went climbing at Subrooke.  We marched through Lincoln Castle and Lincoln Cathedral during the St George’s Day Parade.  We visited Playzone, and played.  We went to see Bear Grylls (Chief Scout) as he flew around the country for Bear In The Air.   We went on a Nature Walk along the old railway line.  We grew some runner beans.  We made mini ornamental gardens.  We exhibited at Saxilby Show.  We had a late summer camp at Walesby Forest.  We visited the Fire Station at Saxilby.  We went fishing.  We visited and learned all about St Botolph’s Church.  We helped a lot of cubs fill their arms with badges while teaching them skills they will likely remember for the rest of their lives.  We welcomed a lot of new Cubs swimming up from the Beavers.  We stood proud as we passed on our older Cubs over to the Scouts.

Parent Helpers

We would not be able to run many of the activities and badge work without our parent helpers.  This hardy band of parents assist us during weekly meetings and our many outings and activities.  If you would like to help out and join our parent rota, then speak to one of the leadership team or click on the banner below.
