Hello here at the 7th we like to pride ourselves on welcoming everyone who would like to have a go at Scouting. In return we like the children to ‘Do their best’ earn and give respect and have a go at activities in Scouting.

All said and done Cub Scouts access a varied programme with as many activities outdoors, dependant on safety and clement weather as possible.

We have our own grounds and a favourite is fire-lighting, more fire-lighting and then cooking on the fires built, and yes maybe we may earn a badge in the process but some activities are just fun.

District events like Pack night can be attended by all where the Cubs meet up and mix with around 200 other cubs and participate in Scouting activies with new friends. District camp is well attended and offers the opportunity to try other challenging activities such as shooting and archery.

We do try and work our programme around the badges but Cubs are also encouraged to complete some badge work for themselves at home.

Camps have been limited the last couple of years as we are short of leaders resulting in this year resulting in a sleepover at the Scout hut.

There are plans afoot for a group camp in 2015 which I know all the leaders will enjoy. Also District camp is already on the calendar as well as a joint camp with the Scouts.

As a group we will have campfires occasional hikes together, we are having a sport party at Christmas and we have hired the pool to complete some badge work. Trimley and Felixstowe carnival were enjoyed by those who took part and allowed Scouting to be visible to all watching

We ask the children to attend occasional church services, fundraising activities some for the group with others for other charities for example Children in Need, water aid and Guide dogs for the blind.

If you are between 8-10.5 and are interested in any of these activities please forward your details to a member of the 7th Felixstowe Group
