SEE WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO, AND WHAT’S COMING UP AHEAD!
A big thank you to Kaitlin Brethour for her visit this month to speak to our Scouts and Cubs about living with disability. Her candour and humour gave us great insight into the challenges faced by those with differing abilities.
While showing us some of the everyday tools and technology that she uses to facilitate everyday activities, Kaitlin also inspired us with some of her accomplishments, including discussing her University degrees.
Come visit 1st Maxville Scouting at the Maxville Home Hardware on Saturday, October 24 for Apple Day! Our youth will also be collecting cans and bottles for our bottle drive, so come drop off your empty bottles and pop cans!
Hikes, hands on activities, and weekend camps are just a few of the fun outdoor adventures that Cub Scouts enjoy. Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities. Learning important first aid skills, paddling a canoe for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible.
Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themelves and work as a team – and most importantly have a lot of fun! Cub Scouts is manipulated from Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” – so many leaders names come from this, as well as many ceremonies and games. In Maxville we have an Akela, a Shada, a Rama and a Baloo. Cub Scouts form a large Pack from which they are formed into smaller groups called “Lairs”, which used to be “Sixes”. Within each Lair there are leadership roles and Cub Scouts really start to develop their leadership skills.
In Maxville, we are also working towards synchronizing with the Canadian Path system, so some aspects of our program will be changing their name.
The Cub Scout program focuses on six activity areas: The Natural World, Outdoors, Creative Expression, Healthy Living, Home and Community, and Canada and the World. Activities include:
- Music, storytelling, and play-acting
- Games and sports
- Water activities like canoeing and kayaing
- Hikes, weekend camps and outdoor activites
Cub Scout Promise:
I promise to do my best, to love and serve God, to do my duty to the Queen, to keep the law of the Wolf Cub Pack, and to do a good turn for somebody every day.
Cub Scout Law:
The Cub respects the Old Wolf, the Cub respects himself/ herself.
Cub Scout Motto:
Do you best!
Cubs are expected to have the grey uniform for weekly meetings and camp ceremonies. They will be given their necker upon investment into 1st Maxville’s Pack (once they learn their Cub Motto, Promise, and Law). They will also be given their Cub woggle at this point and be designated a lair. During their Investiture Ceremony they will also be given the Voyageur Council crest, the Odawa Area crest, and the Maxville Group crest. The link below is provided to show where they go on their uniform.
If you have any questions, please email me at: email@example.com
