Cubs are back…

Wednesday 1st February 6.45 pm

meeting : The Secondary School (Colaiste Bhaile Chlair)

Full uniform required. Badges that were awarded before the Christmas break should by now be sewn onto your cubs jumper.

As you may know, the new Claregalway secondary school building has opened and there is a new road going into the school from the Lakeview road, which is the road leading to the Cubs Den/community centre.

Follow this new road into the school to the end and you will find the building that we have our meetings in.

The gates at the end of the road ,through the Claregalway Corporate Park, that we used last year have been closed so you will not be able to access the school from this road any longer.

Looking forward to seeing all the youth members again.

Existing members

All existing members form last year that wish to continue need to be registered again for this year.

New Members

As there is a waiting list for most sections, you need to have previously submitted a waiting list form to be included on the list. At this time of year, we review the list and invite new members to register. You will be contacted by the relevant Section leader or the overall Group Leader if a place has become available.

For those considering joining (or adding a name to the list), it is important to understand that Scouting aims to support young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development with a strong focus on the outdoors. This means that all sections will have many outdoor activities during the year such as hikes, water activities, backwoods, camping and more. As we live in Ireland, we do these in all kinds of weather conditions!
