Wolf Cubs - 8 to 11 Year Olds. Doing our Best!

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:

The Law
The Cub gives in to the Old Wolf.
The Cub does not give in to himself.

The Promise
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.

The Motto
Do Your Best

Wolf Cubs work towards their First, then Second Stars, learning important skills such as lighting  and cooking on open fires, tying knots, growing plants, using compasses etc. They then work towards the top award in Cubs - the Leaping Wolf.

Wolf Cubs can also work towards proficiency badges, and can gain their Citizenship Award when they have earnt 3 Public Service badges (Conservation, House Orderly, Guide, First Aider, Crime Prevention, Visual Communicator) and taken part in a community project.
