We have been working towards the World Challenge badge this month by going on a walk around Ripley to see what services local people could use. We spotted the library, the park, the ambulance station and lots more. One of the Cubs spotted 60 things! We finished off at Ripley’s Fish and Chip Shop at the bottom of Oxford Street where we all had chips. A big thank you to Ripley’s for their generous discount on the chips that we ordered.
The following week we carried on with the world challenge badge by making fat feeders for the birds in our gardens and looking at the Cub Scout promise and how we do our best, as well as what we could maybe do better at.
We had a night making wesak lanterns, from the Buddhist festival. To make them we used bendy straws and lots of tissue paper, we had some realy good lanterns at the end of the night.
The final week we tried to finish off as much of the totem pole as we could. A couple of the Cubs finished painting the head we have made from paper mache, while everyone else made lots and lots of paper ribbons which we will use whenever anyone gets a badge, they can write their name and the badge they have got and stick it to the totem pole.
We finished May off with a weekend full of adventure at Walesby Forest for their Cubs100 camp. Three nights camping over 30 different activities, and not a lot of sleeping. The leaders now have 28 badges to give out after the camp. If you would like to read more about the camp then click here for the camp report.
A massive thank you to all of the leaders for their support we wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
