Can’t Stop the Cubs!

The Cubs at 2nd Bognor Regis Sea Scouts have had a spring term full of activities, badges and trips! They haven’t stopped since returning from the New Year, after a busy Autumn term, the pack returned to a full speed ahead programme for the spring as well.
Beginning the term with an exciting visit to Bognor Fire Station, where they were greeted warmly by the Blue Watch. The Cubs were well behaved and interactive, asking questions and remembering what equipment did what.

Can’t Stop the Cubs!

The Cubs at 2nd Bognor Regis Sea Scouts have had a spring term full of activities, badges and trips! They haven’t stopped since returning from the New Year, after a busy Autumn term, the pack returned to a full speed ahead programme for the spring as well.
Beginning the term with an exciting visit to Bognor Fire Station, where they were greeted warmly by the Blue Watch. The Cubs were well behaved and interactive, asking questions and remembering what equipment did what. One Cub, with food on the mind, asked what they were having for dinner, after discovering that the firefighters slept at the station in the bunk room, they were having cottage pie. One Cub even asked if he could stay for dinner! After a tour of the station and the vehicles, wearing fireman costumes and looking at the different equipment like infra-red cameras, the Cubs were treated to a ride in the fire engine and a go at putting out their own (imaginary) fires with the hoses.

With the duties of St George’s Day looming, the Cub Scout team decided to take a different approach by giving birth to Freddie the Dragon (of course named by Claire and Katherine). This made a great Chinese New Year with some Chinese food to share around and has given us the evil Dragon for St. George’s day.

During half term, the Cubs invaded London to explore the Science Museum. With a fun filled day of hands on science we visited each section of the museum looking for the answers to gain us the Time Travelling Badge. One of the answers came and introduced themselves to us, quite literally. A great theatrical play of Amy Johnson (the first woman to fly from England to Oz) had the cubs entranced and interacting by showing that they could fly a plane like Amy, some even got to wear her goggles and old style flying jacket. A great day out for 2
nd Bognor Cubs, my Mum and DC Bongo!!

Gas stove burners, lots of eggs and plenty of maple syrup...must be Pancake Day! We incorporated this with the chef’s badge by making savoury cheese and tomato, sweet traditional and American style pancakes. Lots of stuffed cubs and happy faces by the end of the evening.
Along with the rest of the District Cubs, 2
nd Bognor participated in the Jambowlree at Chichester Lakeside Bowling. It was a great turnout with the cubs taking over the whole complex and great fun was had certainly by all of 2nd Bognor cubs and the all the cubs attending. A bit of fierce rivalry between the three high scorers but a last minute strike saw a clear winner.

On last night of term we had an Easter Hike from Felpham back to HQ, with some yummy goodies waiting back at the hall.
Build your own Shanty houses! This was the challenge set to the Cubs once they arrived at the Slumdog Sleepover the 1 night camp during Easter Holidays. Completing their Global Challenge in the process, they built and slept in their own shanty houses out of cardboard boxes, materials and bamboo sticks. Making a Chicken Curry for dinner and two cubs become pro Chapatis makers. Making a total of 32 in under an hour!
