A note from the website editor and a dad of a 2nd Eltham Cubs Scout.
Over the last year my son has been able to...
Learn Campfire songs, hiking, camping, learn first aid, carve a wooden car, make a balsa wood plane, learn water safety, learn how to pitch a tent, learn firsthand about hygiene and its importance, learn about water conservation and caring for the environment, attend leadership councils, science experiments and so so much more. (and a ton of games) I can honestly say that he would have not done a tenth of that without being part of 2nd Eltham Cubs.
The great thing is that he is learning by doing and the team he is in gets caught up in the excitement of the moment. They don't realise that they are learning at all.
Nobody sits in front of the tv or computer and says "that was the best night of my life". In comparison some of the stuff that he is doing he will remember forever. As a dad I am proud to be part of that experience. The Eltham Scouts community provides the framework and is able to fall back on over 100 years’ experience. We reap the benefit of some very very smart people.
Today I asked my son what was the best thing that he has done over the last year. Instead of answering he cut to the chase and said that he needs to learn more first aid. Can I help him please. Of course the answer is Yes!
I love the fact that all the sections help with 2nd Eltham Cubs. We have a Venturer helper from the 2nd Eltham Ventures section each Wednesday and the 2nd Eltham Rovers will come and teach a night here and there. Some of our older cubs went on camp recently with the 2nd Eltham Scouts and they learnt a great deal. You could see the change in the cubs as they were able to take on and beat new and exciting challanges. All in all it is a great team effort.Look forward to seeing you soon at 2nd Eltham Scouts... WayneUpdate... This term he is going, Camping, Canoeing, Sailing, to a fire station, and to a regatta and swimming and a chocolate night.
