Cub Scouting at West Monkton
Welcome to West Monkton Cubs! We are the second section in the Scouting Movement for young people aged 8-10½. We are part of the Taunton District down in Somerset and aim to produce exciting and dynamic programmes for all the young people in our care, to give fun, challenge and adventure. We run two separate pack nights to cater for over 50 young people in our section on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The Leadership team in the Cub Section have over 25 years’ experience between them.
There are many opportunities to get stuck in with all the fun. In the warmer months, Huish Woods is perfect for our needs. We are out and about learning new skills like camping, camp cooking and fire lighting. We offer a wide range of activities and opportunities including archery, golf, hiking, swimming and fundraising events. We normally run around 5 camps a year which often involve 2 nights away. There are lots of badges to be gained which adds to the excitement of completing the requirements, earning self belief, confidence and being proud when they complete them.
In the winter when the weather is cold and wet, we will be indoors. Although we are indoors, we still have fun, play lots of games and do lots of badge work which can not be completed outdoors. If you would like to join our Pack or have any questions, then get in touch with us today.
We are always looking for parent help on evenings and activities so if you would like to get involved as a helper or even becoming a Leader then please get in touch online or speak to Myra & Steph.
