1st Carse Cubs – Kippen

1st Carse Cubs, based in Kippen, was established at the end of August 2016.  We have grown from strength to strength in a very short space of time and have managed to pack a great deal into the last few terms.

We enjoyed hosting our Bonfire and Fireworks night on 1st November, which was well attended and raised some funds for some very worthwhile, local causes.

The Cubs learnt First Aid and basic rescue skills from Trossachs Search and Rescue who brought their dogs along to stage a rescue of two of our young leaders, in Kippen woods which was great fun and taught the boys a lot.

Additionally, amongst other things, we had a trip to the Woodland Light Experience, have been having fun with indoor cricket, had a visit from John Coyle to learn all about bees, had a visit to Stirling Observatory and a shot at “Summer ice”, in the reading rooms and much, much more…..

On the 7th & 8th April we took 12 Cubs and a young leader on our first ever camp.  This took place at Beechwood Scout Hall, in Stirling and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended.  Activities included Kayaking, tent pitching, we played cricket, capture the flag and enjoyed several other activities too.  The boys had a brilliant time and everyone left happy (and exhausted)!

We are looking forward to taking a stall at Kippen Street Fayre and hope that you will stop by to visit our Cubs and leaders.

1st Carse Cubs meets during term times, on a Tuesday evening from 5:45 until 7:15pm.  During the winter months we tend to meet in Kippen Village Hall but with the days getting lighter, and hopefully with better weather on its way, we will be doing as much outdoors as possible, usually meeting up at the football pitch to enjoy the great outdoors.  We are currently at capacity and have a waiting list for those wishing to join.

We would like to thank the local community for their continued support.  If anyone has any skills or activities they’d like to share with our group please get in touch.
