9th Ormskirk Cubs

For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.

The Cub Pack is the second section of the 9th Ormskirk Scout Group following on from Beavers. We currently have 2 cub packs meeting on a Wednesday and Thursday nights. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.

Fire Station visit November 2017

The cubs visited their local fire station at Ormskirk as part of their fire safety badge. They learnt about different parts of the fire engine and what a firefighters role is. They got to try on the firefighters uniform,take a seat in the fire engine and had a spray of the hose. They also got to see some firefighters respond to a real incident where they used their sirens and blue flashing lights.

Thursday cubs took a visit to the Tesco in Southport to learn about healthy eating. They got to taste some different healthy foods and learn about a healthy diet. They got a special tour around the shop to see what happens and also got to see how cold the freezer was! At the end of the night they all took away a Kiwi and earned their badge.

Easter Cub Camp 2016

The cubs had a great weekend away at Tawd Vale Campsite for easter. The weekend started off with a tour around the site after setting up tents and unpacking their sleeping bags and roll mats. Later on the friday they enjoyed a few campfire songs before going to bed. Their favourite song by far was the “I saw a bird” song which was sung by the Young Leader and repeated by the cubs.

Saturday morning went off to a great start with two members of the district coming in to do archery with the cubs. After two hours they had all mastered their technique and were getting better and better in each go. After archery the cubs lit fires and enjoyed some lovely burgers for lunch. In the afternoon the cubs set sail in their kayaks on the delph and enjoyed a few games on the water. They even managed to survive storm Katie and some torrential hailstone!

Sunday morning started with an easter egg hunt set up by the leaders and the cubs were desperate to find the eggs, looking everywhere they could for the hidden eggs. After lunch on Sunday, the cubs packed up and went home after a fun filled weekend. Well done cubs!
