The Cubs section is lead by Sarah Chamberlain know as Akela. She has been with the section for a number of years. Sarah is assisted by several assistant leaders and young leaders.
Boys or Girls can join Cubs from eight years old with many of them previously being Beavers, although this is not a requirement.
Being older children,
the activities increase accordingly: Cubs learn to cook for themselves as well as putting up tents and making camp. They learn enhanced first aid skills including CPR. Other outdoor activities include pioneering (building structures, towers, bridges and giant
catapults using wooden poles and rope), kyaking, athletics and geocashing
Cubs learn how to become responsible members of the community, assisting in projects around the town.
Cubs undertake regular camps both in our grounds or at other sites within the southeast; these can be anything from a weekend to seven days. The activites become more challenging building on existing skills with
more exciting activities to earn the achievement badges.
