Duncan Loane receiving the Grey Wolf Award. Formerly called the Yellow Cord, this is the highest level badge a cub scout can earn, and is akin to the Australian Scout Medallion for Scouts, Queen Scout Award for Venturers, or Baden Powell Scout Award for Rovers. The content for this badge is based around leadership of the cub scout pack, and the transition phase to becoming a scout.
It involves being awarded the Gold Boomerang, attending a series of outdoor activities, several pack councils, 4 x Level 2 Achievement badges and production of a resource to be used by the pack.
Investing five new Cubs into Tambo. A exciting and semi-formal occasion for new Cubs and their parents as well as for the rest of the Pack.
The International Culture Achievement Badge is one of the 34 Achievement Badges that Cubs can earn. Susan Loane, a Parent Helper, ran an evening on the Cub Program introducing the Cubs to some aspects of the culture of our nearest neighbor – Papua New Guinea.
The creative side of the Tambo Cubs was exercised in the design and construction of paper mache dragons – an activity that spanned several nights on our monthly program.
Another popular activity in the Cub Program. The Cubs learn to safely use hand tools to make a functional bird feeder that can be placed in their garden at home. Always a popular activity.
The Annual Moocooboola District Cub Scout Leadership Course where Cubs from across the District spend a weekend learning about what it means to be an effective Cub Scout Leader. A cleverly constructed blend of theory, practical exercises and games in a fun-filled weekend at Windeyer.
This is one of the favourite nights we run each year – sometimes more than once. Lighting a fire and putting it out safely, making and cooking damper, and finishing it off with a Marshmallow treat. Lots of new skills, some lessons and lots of fun. Never fails to engage the Cubs.
