At Cubs level we will expand on the experiences of Keas and start to learn some of the basic skills around these activities and teamwork will start to play a bigger part.
Activities include camping, rowing, sailing, canoeing, building rafts, pioneering, cooking over open fires, swimming, learning water safety and boating skills, Senior Cub Camp.
The Scout promise is:
On my honour, I promise to do
my best, to develop my spiritual beliefs,
to contribute to my community,
country and world, to help other people,
and to live by the Scout Law
Te kī Taurangi Scout (Our Scout Promise)
E mana ai taku kī taurangi, kia
pukumahi te mahi,
Kia tau te whakapono-ā-wairua,
Kia ihu oneone ki te hapori, ki te whenua tupu, ki te ao
Kia manaakitia tangata kē atu,
Kia ū ki tā te ture i kī mai ai.
Meeting Times and Location
Cubs meet on a Monday and Tuesday night at the New Lynn Scout Hall on Margan Avenue, typically from 6:30-8:00pm. You can choose to join either of those nights. During the summer these times and locations may vary a little as we chase the tides when doing boating activities.
Weekly meetings coincide with the normal school terms.
Throughout the year there will also be some additional weekend activities that will be advertised from time to time. These include family boating days (typically Sundays), the Zone swimming sports, Canoe Carnival, Founders Weekend and Senior Cub Camp…
We recommend that you come along to 3 consecutive meetings (no charge) to meet everyone and give it a go. You can enrol into the activity after the first meeting and receive two more free trial nights https://enrolmy.com/new-lynn-sea-scout-group.
Once you enrol you will be on our email list and receive the communications for the next weeks activity.
Then if you like it and want to join our troop, let one of your leaders know and they will arrange to invest you as a member of Scouts NZ. You will need to buy a uniform shirt as part of becoming an invested member.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange coming along for the first time to confirm the meeting time and location as these can vary depending on the activity planned for the evening (for some sections we have a waiting list, thats how fun it is).
The Uniform shirt we wear is the Blue Scout shirt. These can be purchased on line at https://scoutsdirect.co.nz/collections/general-uniforms-and-clothing/products/sea-scouts-uniform-keas-through-to-leaders?variant=2745951387661.
You will be provided with a Group Scarf and membership badges when you are invested as a member (Investiture fee is a one off $20).

DO WHAT IS RIGHT

The leaders are often assisted by the Scouts and Venturers
We ask everyone to have respect for themselves and others, as well as the environment. We use this commitment to ensure our members have strong positive working relationships and understand how they connect to the environment.
We ask everyone to commit to being trustworthy and tolerant, and to having integrity. For young people this means always doing the ‘right thing’. This value is about encouraging personal responsibility and broader citizenship.
Finally, we ask members to commit to accepting challenges with courage and to be a friend to all. This focuses on helping members use bravery to face tough times, as well connecting with people from different communities.
