You can expect, in Cubs, to be offered a huge range of activities, whether in the Hut, from the Hut, out in the wilderness, or on a camp.
With first Abram Cubs, the rule is ‘never say no, try every activity once!’. If you say yes and you don’t like it, nobody will force you to try it again – if you say no, it could be the one thing that you would’ve loved and done for the rest of your life.
Cubs learn to hone their skills from Beavers, and pick up new skills all the time.
As our Cubs grow, they’ll get so many opportunities to try new things. In Cubs over the last 2 years, our young people have had the following opportunities:
- Fire Lighting
- Knife Skills
- Axe Skills
- Axe/Tomahawk Throwing
- Air Rifle Shooting
- Hiking (both short, and full day)
- Crate Stacking (great for team building!)
- Trips to Art Galleries
- Trips to Museums
- Trips to Legoland
- Trips to Gullivers Land
- Camps (weekends)
- Camps (whole week)
- Harry Potter Themed Camp
- Survival/Wilderness Themeds Camp
- Visit to our Local Church
- Virtual Camp (Camp at Home)
- Virtual visit to a Bhuddist Temple
Cubs will also take part in local parades, and team sports and games as part of their development within the movement.
In 2020, when the world stood still, our Cubs kept going online due to the dedication of our leaders to continuity – when we’re working in person, we reach new heights! The sky is the limit!
