Tuesday Leaders at Recharge Weekend – Training and a bit of fun

Sandie and Kieran meeting the Chief Scout of Ireland – Michael John Shinnock.

Natasha, Patrick, Sandie, Kieran and Darren all headed to Scouting Ireland Castle Saunderson campsite, where we attended a Leaders training weekend. As you can see from our attire – it was a lot of fun.   Looking forwards to sharing our new skills with our cubs.

Visit to Arklow Sea Scout Den

We got invited to bring some of our cubs down to meet some of the Arklow Cubs who are doing their Chief Scout Award. We were given our dinner and had a presentation on Arklow, followed by a walk around the town. It was a great day out and we made great new friends. Looking forward to seeing them all sometime in Bray and we might even have a sleepover in Arklow den before the year is out.

Woggle, Badge and Cup Making and Sleepover

15 Cubs enjoyed an activity filled day on Saturday. We had different bases set up, where the cubs learned how to make a cup/bowl from coconuts, create their own woggle and personalise their own badges from wood. After a successful afternoon we went on a nice walk to McDonalds for a well earned treat. Next on the cards was a movie night and sleepover in the den. Well done to everyone for a great event.
