Cubs Space Camp 2016 @ Thriftwood Tented Village in Brentwood, Essex on the 19/02/2016 and 20/02/16 went brilliantly!
MashAllah even though we had some cold weather and rain (and mud!), the Cubs were in their true Scouting spirit and we enjoyed a plethora of activities, sleeping in a tent overnight and the lovely campfire with roasted marshmallows!
Congratulations to our Scouts who attended a presentation ceremony at Gilwell Park HQ to receive their well deserved Chief Scout Awards yesterday.
3 Beavers achieved their Chief Scout Bronze Award for completing 6 Challenges over 2 years – Abdurrahman Sattar, Zakariyah Chowdhury and Summayah Zaheer. 7 Cubs were awarded their Chief Scout Silver Award – Hamza Ismail, Yusuf Karim, Safwaan Rafique, Zaynah Zaheer, Safiyah Hussain, Maryam Ali and Hafsah Sattar.
7 Girl Scouts also achieved their Chief Scout Gold Award after completing a difficult set of 8 Challenges.
Well done to Emaan Hussain, Sara Jugon, Ayesha Karim, Sana Ali, Zainab Ahmed, Aaliyah Tucker and Aisha Mirza.
Many congratulations to our 2 Design a 7G Card winners. Summayah Zaheer (aged 8) won the Beaver/Cubs Category and Ayesha Karim (aged 12) won the Scouts/Explorers Category. Their winning designs are below, together with them receiving their prizes. Ayesha Karim was absent and her brother and sister picked up her Award on her behalf.
All Sections attended the Renewal of Promise Ceremony held at Hargreaves Scout Campsite on 23.04.15. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers renewed their promises as a Group. 5 7th Goodmayes Scout Leaders were also awarded their Wood Badges.
It was a lovely Spring Evening and everyone enjoyed many activities, including go karts, bouncy castles and wall climbing as well as burgers for all!
In 2013, the 7th Goodmayes Cubs were praised for their good behaviour and enthusiasm. As a result one of our Cubs, Hafsa Gachi, was selected to attend the National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle on 21st April 2013 where she presented flowers to the Duchess of Cambridge, who is herself a volunteer with the Scout Association.
Hafsa said that although she felt a little shy and nervous, she was very pleased to have presented the flowers and that the Duchess of Cambridge was ‘very nice and kind’.
