The term started with Katie, Charles and Jayden were invested as new Cubs. Three dads were also invested as Assistant Pack Scouters and presented their scarves by their daughters.
Two Cubs earned their Leaping Wolf badge. A big part of the Leaping Wolf is the Personal Challenge. Rhys told us about recovering after surgery to remove a spinal tumour in 2020, learning to walk again, and reaching his goal of hiking to the King’s Blockhouse. Kiran wrote about how he decided to keep himself busy and happy with new projects during lockdown, which included a series of artworks, a YouTube channel, learning piano, caring for animals, hiking, and more. Both logbooks were amazing to read and we are proud of Rhys and Kiran for their Leaping Wolf badges.
The Cubs walked from Cecilia Forest car park to Kirstenbosch. Mountain safety and the buddy system were covered.
At one of our indoor meetings, the Cubs explored culture and flags.
The Cubs traditionally end each term with an activity that involves lighting fires. At the end of last term they cooked stokbrood.
