1st Whittingham Wolf Cubs
The Wolf Cubs are aged 8 - 11, and
meet on Thursday nights at 6.30pm.
The Wolf Cub pack is based on the
Jungle Book theme, and prepares the boys and girls for Scouts with a fun and
adventurous programme. Whittingham Cubs enjoy climbing, tracking, map-reading,
camping, Area events, science experiments, and much, much more!
Cubs are led by Akela,
(Ninette), Kaa (Karl), Baloo (Liz), and Hathi(Ian). Akela can
be contacted at GSM@1stwhittingham.org.uk
Over recent years we have had a super Robin Hood camp on the edge of Cheviots, a sleepover at Cragside, a Viking Camp near Holy Island and a Border Reiver Camp in Kidland Forest, as well as enjoying the fantastic Area Cub Camps. Here are some photos of our adventures:
The Wolf Cubs have their own Law,
Promise and Motto:
gives in to the Old Wolf.
The Cub does not give in to himself.
I promise to
DO MY BEST
To do my duty to God, and to the Queen,
To keep the Law of the Wolf Cub Pack,
and to do a good turn to somebody every day.
Do Your Best
