Beaver Scouts (5y 9m – 8y) are our youngest members. They take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes.
Cubs (8y – 10y 6m) take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and
challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent
outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts (10y 6m – 14y) learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they may get up to.
15th Huddersfield Scouts
Scouts and Beavers started their outdoor meetings in April whilst the Cub Section is waiting until May before beginning to meet outside – they will continue their weekly zoom sessions until then. Section leaders will be in touch with full details.
The group is having a special open day on Saturday May 8th to help to welcome everyone back. We want to encourage new members to join us and we will be advertising the day on social media but we also want our existing members to come along and bring a friend if possible.
· Beavers from 10.30 – 12.00
· Cubs from 1.00 – 2.30 and
· Scouts from 3.00 to 4.30.
Due to the Covid Regulations, we will be limited to 15 young people at each session so we will be asking everyone to ‘book’ onto the day by completing the form which can be found at this link.
If you are bringing a friend, please book them on separately so we know how many people are coming.
I have attached the Group’s outdoor Covid Risk Assessment as a reminder of the procedures we will have in place to safeguard each other. May I remind parents:
· Do not send your child if they are showing any signs of Covid or are isolating
· Try to avoid sharing transport unless children are in your family bubble
· Maintain social distancing whilst dropping off and picking up your child
We are currently looking to recruit a new Cub Scout Leader to assist at weekly meetings as one of the existing leaders has got a new job which makes attending meetings more difficult. If you feel you can come and help us out, please contact me on email@example.com
