Japan Jamboree Night

11 September 2014

UKC_23rd_WSJ_Japan_Solidarity_BadgeTonight at Cubs, the evening was run by Taylor, a member of our Scout Troop, and Emily (aka Dizzy), one of our Young Leaders, who put on a Japanese-themed evening – naturally in support of the World Scout Jamboree in 2015 (Taylor and Emily are members of the UK Contingent going to the WSJ!)!

This was to go towards the Cubs’ Global Challenge Badge and their International Partnership Award.

It was a great evening, with lots going on :-).

The evening started off with the investiture, by the Group Scout Leader, of one of our Assistant Cub Scout Leaders, Keego!


Congratualtions Keego!

Then, as my first Cub investiture, since becoming Akela, I invested Harry B – recently Moved On to Cubs from Beavers – into Yellow Six.


Then we handed over to Taylor and Emily to run the evening. After a brief opening by Taylor and Emily, they then split the Cubs up into their Sixes, put some of the Scouts with each Six also and then they went off to do some different activities that had been arranged.

Here Emily demonstrates to a group how to use chopsticks and then they have a go…. if they’re successful, they get to keep – and eat – Haribo 🙂

Lastly Taylor and Emily did a very informative presentation about Japan which the Cubs enthusistically got involved in and asking questions.


Well done, Taylor and Emily for putting this on!

Awards: Our evening culminated with me handing out the new “Time on the Water” badge to Josh S; and some new-look Cubs Contracts (wording is the same) that the newly invested Cubs had signed and I, as “Akela”, counter-signed. The last order of business was then for our Group Scout Leader to make a Chief Scout’s Silver Award presentation to James D who completed all his Challenge Badges the previous week!


Great work James!
