Kirkhill Cub Scouts

Cub Scout logo

Welcome back!

Cubs will start back on Tuesday 29th April at the usual time of 6:30pm in Kirkhill Community Centre. As per usual, this will be a games night.

The programme for this term is below. This term, with the lighter evenings and (hopefully!) better weather, we will be spending more time on outdoor activities. We are going to be going to camp at the Killearnan Centre on the Black Isle from 16-18 May. Some of you will have been there before and it is a great facility, right on our doorstep. Details of the camp will be sent out nearer the time.

Additionally, we will be out and about, both before the camp and after, with a shelter building activity at Reelig Glen and a hike around Phoineas Hill planned as well as some backwoods cookery nearer to hand.

As usual, we will be ending the term with a Sausage Sizzle at Abriachan. This will be held along with the Beavers, Scouts and Explorers and is a great way to round off what has been an enjoyable year in Scouting. Parents and siblings are welcome to come along and enjoy the midges under the trees!

Parent Helpers

Because we are expecting to have 24 Cubs this term, we would be grateful for some parent helpers to volunteer to stay for a Tuesday evening. We would prefer not to have to organise a rota but we would appreciate some help. In particular, we would be grateful if a number of you could be around for the evenings at Reelig Glen and Phoineas Hill.

Term Fees

The subs for this term are £20, due on the first day of term. The fee for new Cubs to the section is £25 for their first term (the extra £5 covers investiture).

This term, we are continuing to use the new payment system which allows us to collect payment on-line. You will receive an e-mail explaining what you will need to do. If you do not feel comfortable using this method, please feel free to pay in the usual way.

As usual, we would be grateful if you could pay this as early as possible. Thank You.

Camp Fees

Fees for the May Camp are £18 and can also be paid on-line, if desired. You should have received an e-mail about this. Again, if you do not feel comfortable using this method, please feel free to pay in the usual way.
