St Bridgets Cub Pack meet on Mondays at 6:00pm to 7:25 pm
At St Bridgets Cubs, our volunteer Leaders work hard in providing your Cub with an exciting and varied adventure throughout their time in the pack. All of which is based around the mutual ethos of fun. In addition to this, we understand that fun comes in different forms for our Cubs but this is why there is so much variety planned as it helps with their development.
But the fun doesn’t stop at the weekly pack nights in the hall. No no! There is so much adventure planned for the Cubs that the pack has around six to eight camps each year which are held at the Scout Hall (1 night sleepover) or up at Scotland HQ for Scouting – Fordell Firs (2 night camp).
And if that wasn’t enough, there have been adventures away from the hall on pack nights where the Cubs have learnt about many a new thing. Recent visits include the Lifeboat Station at Kinghorn, the Mosque, the Fire Station, Orienteering, Climbing, Kayaking, the Bus Transport Museum in Dunfermline and a favourite for all, Krispy Kreme in Edinburgh! That’s right, on occasion we let loose the reigns and let some sugar invade the pack nights!
But you might be asking, if there’s so much fun outside of the hall, what kind of fun is happening inside the hall? Well, in addition to the fun games we all like to play, we have been known to practice our knots with a tug of war, test who can create the tallest tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows, grow some crystals in a jar and having a one night show of entertainment for the parents by the Dalgety Bay Amateur Cub Troop of Innovative and Oratory Nuances…or DAB Action for short.
But don’t worry folks, we leaders are still adults at the end of the day and when the Cubs aren’t looking, we sneak in some important lessons such as Fire Safety, Animal Care and Home Help to name a few. You see, everything we do is tied into a badge one way or another and we have seen first-hand the feeling of accomplishment a Cub has when they receive new badges, only to be replaced with pride when they are sewn onto the arm of their Cub jumper.
