Falcon Pack camp at Tolmers

Falcon Pack have just had their Pack camp at Tolmers, they were able to take part in lots of activities such as cooking their lunch on a fire-Backwoods style!

After washing up was finished, the Cubs had some free time. Some chose to play football and others to do some craft inside.

Some people had obviously had an early start!

Kayaking in the afternoon to gain stage one Paddlesports badge.

Then climbing on Sunday morning after camp was packed away. Oli-our former Leader was the instructor for this. Good to see him again.
Many thanks to all those who came along and helped at the camp and made sure it happened this year.

Marching to St. George's chapel for the Queen's Scout service

The service was relayed out to those outside, the speaker was Brendan Cox, his wife Jo was an MP who was murdered by an extremist last year. He spoke about how Scouting has shaped his life and the Great Get Together weekend that he has brought about to get people involved together.
A very special day for everyone that was lucky enough to be there.
And especial congratulations to Dano for achieving his Queen's Scout Award, the first 'home grown' 3rd Ware Queen's Scout since the Senior Scout Troop of 1956!

Falcon Pack at Pets at Home

The Cubs of Falcon Pack were able to visit Pets at Home in Hertford to learn about pet care and begin working towards their Animal Carer badge

First we learnt about what rabbits and guinea pigs like to eat and the fact they eat their own poo!
Then we felt the different temperatures of water that fish like to live in.
Then we looked at a very shy corn snake!

Last of all, we were able to go in with the vet and hear the heart beat of a guinea pig, it is very fast.
Many thanks to the staff of Pets at Home for a great visit.


Chief Scout Silver Award evening 2017

Those Cubs who had achieved the Silver award over the past year gathered together to receive a special Ware & District certificate presented to them by Jagz Bharth, one of the UK Youth Commissioners.

There were seven members of 3rd Ware present at the presentation with a further two more who were unable to make the evening.

The Cubs also learnt the art of washing up after the cooking and eating!

Founder's day 2017

All of the Cubs of Ware & District descended on Amwell View School for the annual activity day for Founder's day.
They were able to take part in lots of activities; dance in the studio, climbing wall, soft play, swimming, a treasure hunt and trying out the instruments that belong to the Braughing Scout & Guide band.
This year they were able to hear about the work of the charity Scope who work with people who have physical disabilities.
The day ended with a short Cub's Own and to give thanks for the life and legacy of our Founder Robert Baden-Powell.
