Cub Leader Andy Woodward and ADC Cubs Paul Shepard with Thomas and Marek

Well done to Thomas Perkin and Marek Nahajski who have both been awarded their Silver Chief Scout’s Award by ADC Cubs, Paul Shepard.

Thomas will be moving up to Scouts soon and gets to wear the Silver Award on his Scout uniform.

Marek has been a Cub for less than a year and completed his award in July (aged 8).  Is he the youngest to get the award so far in 1st Bagshot?

Family Camp 2012

Family Camp 2012 at Walton Firs was great fun and we managed to dodge quite a lot of the rain.  Dingo and all the team did a fantastic job of organising it all.  Here’s some photos to give you a taste of the weekend.

Fraser Awarded Wood Badge

Congratulations to Fraser Sampson who was awarded his Wood Badge by Spencer (GSL) at the May Cub Camp at Runways End.

“Wood Badge is a Scouting leadership program and the related award for adult leaders in the programs of Scout associations throughout the world.  Wood Badge courses aim to make Scouters better leaders by teaching advanced leadership skills, and by creating a bond and commitment to the Scout movement.  Courses generally have a combined classroom and practical outdoors-based phase followed by a Wood Badge ticket, also known as the project phase. By “working the ticket”, participants put their newly gained experience into practice to attain ticket goals aiding the Scouting movement.

The first Wood Badge training was organized by Francis “Skipper” Gidney and lectured at by Robert Baden-Powell and others at Gilwell Park (United Kingdom) in September 1919.  Wood Badge training has since spread across the world with international variations.

On completion of the course, participants are awarded the Wood Badge beads to recognize significant achievement in leadership and direct service to young people.  The pair of small wooden beads, one on each end of a leather thong (string), is worn around the neck as part of the Scout uniform.  The beads are presented together with a taupe neckerchief bearing a tartan patch of the Maclaren clan, honoring William de Bois Maclaren, who donated the funding to purchase Gilwell Park in 1919.  The neckerchief with the braided leather woggle (neckerchief slide) denotes the membership of the 1st Gilwell Scout Group”
