1st Belmont Cub Group
1st Belmont Scout Group have 2 Beaver Colonies, 2 Cub packs, a very large Scout Troop and Explorer Scouts. The Beavers and Cubs meet in the Community Hall, the rest of the Group at the Devonshire Primary School.
The 2 cub packs run similar programmes all year usually in line with school term dates.
There is an amazing amount of resource material on line from the Scout Association to help Leaders with making meetings fun and exciting and enabling the cubs to gain many awards and badges for their achievements.
Usually the meeting begins with a very active game to ' let off steam'. This year the cubs have worked hard to gain Emergency Aid, Community Challenge and Promise Challenge badges. Some cubs have also taken part in District and County Quizzes.
We have had visits from a scouter who patiently worked with the cubs to build and fly model planes, also we made animal shapes with balloons, shadow puppets and magic tricks.
We have taken part in Sutton District activities -Swimming gala, Science badge day, Outdoor Challenge day, chess tournament.
We have invaded the kitchen to cook for Chinese New Year and then Pancake Day.
If that is not enough we went for a weekend camping at Oxshott and in the summer holidays will be going to a favourite camp on the Isle of Wight.
