(8yrs - 10 1/2yrs)

Day: Wednesday

Time: 6:30pm-8pm (except for school holidays)

Location: Standlake Village Hall

Cubs is run by Peter Craddock, Matthew Judson, Matt Lodge, Tom Mackintosh and Jacob Evans. Jacob has been a member of the Group since he was a Cub while Peter Craddock has extensive experience having led all sections in the Group and has been in Scouting with several Groups for 52 years (as of 2020).

The Cub Leaders are usually known to the Cubs by their Jungle Book character names.

      Peter Craddock has been known as Simba in the Groups in which he has been a leader since long before the Lion King.

      Matthew Judson is known as Chil (the Kite in the Jungle Book).

      Matt Lodge is known as Mowgli (the Man Cub).

      Tom Mackintosh is known as Bagheera (the Panther).

      Jacob Evans is known as Bandar-log (the Monkey).

We meet at Standlake Village Hall, starting at 6.30 pm. and finishing at 8.00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. We aim to run about 10 to 12 sessions each term, although this can vary. At the beginning of each term we issue a programme for the entire term's activities, although again, this may need to be changed at the last moment. During the longer evenings we hope to be able to do events outside.

Scouting has a number of Activity Badges and Challenge Awards which we aim to work towards as your child goes from Beavers to Scouts. Should you wish to know more about the award system, you can find details on the Scouts web site. Badges can be worked towards outside of regular Pack meetings by Cubs and discussed with one of the leaders.

In addition to the regular Pack meetings we will try to organise a weekend camp or two each year, some time on the water at the West Oxfordshire Sailing Club where the Scout section of the Group meet during the summer. We will also try to organise a couple of days out in connection with some of the badges.

Yours in Scouting

Matthew Judson (Chil)
