Cub Programme

The Cub Scout section caters for youngsters (boys and girls) between the ages of 8 and 10½. Cubs are easily distinguished by their green sweatshirts. As a Cub Scout you will get the chance to try lots of different activities like; swimming, music, exploring, computing, collecting, archery and canoeing. If you do them properly and are sufficiently competent, you will get a badge which you can then wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips, days out, and on weekend camps either in Scout accommodation or under canvas. Camps usually involve lots of exciting outdoor activities, and are a great way to make friends with other members of your Pack.

The 3rd Brampton Cub Section follows a programme of activities each term. The latest Cub Scout Programme is available below. Additional activity information and updates will be added to the programme as soon as they become available, so please check back here regularly. Information about this Friday’s activities can also be found on the ‘Friday’ post on the home page.

Parent Rota

The Cub section will be operating a parent rota to provide additional assistance and supervision during Cub meetings. Please check back regularly for any changes.

Helping out on an evening doesn’t mean you will be running the night – the section leaders will do that. Parent helpers provide an extra pair of hands, eyes and ears to fetch/carry, join in with the fun, and to help ensure that everyone has an enjoyable evening.

Please email (or see Dave on Friday night) with the dates you are able to help out on, so that we can allocate helpers to each meeting. First come, first served with dates, so if you offer to help on a date that is already filled, we will try to provide alternatives.

Thank you to everyone for making it such a great start to 2016, the Cubs came up with some great ideas for our new programme!

Cub Programme – January-March 2016 (Revised 29-02-2016)

Please note that all leaders, young leaders, and helpers in all capacities throughout the Group are unpaid volunteers that, in spite of their own family and work commitments, contribute their time, efforts, skills, and often other resources, for the benefit of our young people within the group.

 

Subs

Subs Allocation 2016All members of all sections of the Group pay subs which contribute towards the cost of Capitation (contribution to The Scout Association paid by each Beaver/Cub/Scout), Rent (fees paid to St Thomas’ Church for the Group’s use of the church facilities), Insurance (insurance fee covering loss and theft of equipment owned by the Group), Programme (cost associated with the delivery of the programme in each section), and costs relating to the essential repairs and renewals of existing equipment. The Group endeavours to keep these fees to a minimum, but must ensure that all outgoing expenses are met.

Subs across all sections have increased to £132 annually, effective September 2016. This can be paid termly as 3 payments of £44 by BACS/cash/cheque, or as 12 payments of £11 paid by BACS at the beginning of each calendar month (monthly payments cannot be made by cash/cheque due to the admin resources required to keep track of payments). Please pay electronically wherever possible (3rd Brampton Scout Group – Sort Code 16-16-18 – Account No. 13676668) and ensure that you add your child’s initial and surname to the payment description so that we can reconcile your payment to your child.
