Our Cubs had a ball at Cuboree 2017

More than half our cub pack attended Cuboree 2017 at Camp Cottermouth.  Despite the warm conditions, there was no dampening of their spirits.  We were paired up with the Macarthur Cub Pack (and around 600 other cubs from as far away as South Australia).

Messengers of Peace

During the last term of 2016 our cub packed earned their Messengers of Peace badge, raising money to help buy a world peace bell for Canberra.  To raise money they sold poppies at La Grand Fete and participated in a read-a-thon.  They also sang songs for retirees at the El Alamein Village and Sir Leslie Morshead Manor.
