Repton Cubs

The Cubs are continuing to meet, half the pack at a time,

on a fortnightly basis

So far, they have enjoyed a games night which included some ice-breaker name-learning games to welcome our new Cubs, as well as the usual noisy running and ball games.

Cubs meet on a Wednesday from 6 – 7.20 in the Den on Mitre Drive.

If you would like to add your child to the waiting list please contact Jez -jezzbrooks@hotmail.co.uk for further information.

Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10½ who:

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond

What do Cubs get up to?

Being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Here are some of the things you’ll get up to with your new friends.

Going on adventures

Race down a river. Tell stories by torchlight. Fall asleep beneath the stars. Alongside your Pack, you’ll spend plenty of time in the great outdoors. Together, you might build a den, or create an edible raft out of sweets, or go on a moonlit hike across the fields. And even though you might not be ready to climb Mount Everest just yet, you’re guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on your own doorstop, because being a Cub is all about making the most of what you have, wherever and whoever you are.

 Learning new skills

Cubs learn by doing. Some of the skills you develop will be practical, like knowing how to cook a delicious meal or give someone first aid. Others will allow you to become a master at your chosen hobby, or help you to succeed in whichever job you decide to do when you grow up. But the most important skills you’ll learn at Cubs are the ones that will make you feel confident and happy in your own skin. We call these character skills, and they include things like integrity – which means being honest and doing what you think is right – and initiative – which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked. Whatever skills you’d like to learn, it’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them

Helping others

Cubs work as a team to help other people. Together, you’ll learn about global issues and what we can all do to help solve them. You’ll also make an impact in the community, through activities collecting donations for a foodbank, raising money for local rescue services or planting trees in neighbouring woodland.
