Cub Outdoor Challenge

Return to: 

Not up-to-date? Tell your Section Leader to tell Dave.






































Cub Scouts should complete all of the following:

Take part in at least one residential experience (preferably camping) with a minimum of two nights away. The two nights do not need to be consecutive.





































Explain to other Cub Scouts what activity they enjoyed most whilst on the residential experience and what activity they found hardest. This could be in the form of a poster, story, photographs or similar.





































Learn two new skills and use them, for example: tracking, fire lighting or some basic knots.





































Take part in three new outdoor activities that you have not done before, for example, shelter building, pioneering, archery, skiing, abseiling, a wide game or kite flying
