1st KOGARAH BAY CUB SCOUT PACK
7.10 Grand Howl
7.15 Fruit Salad (Jungle Story) See Attached.
Each Cub Scout is given a name from the story (attached) and when that name is mentioned they run to the end of the hall and back. When the word "Cub" or "Jungle" is mentioned they all run.
Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera, Shere Khan, Mother Wolf, Father Wolf.
7.25 1. Food Hunt.
Equipment: One chair per Six and some pencils, one less than the total of two for each six. For four Sixes, for example, you will need four chair and seven pencils.
“When Mowgli first lived in the wolves‘ cave they knew he was new to the ways of the jungle and did not want to leave him alone. When they went to find food, they went one at a time, leaving someone to protect him“
Place the pencils in the middle of the hall and arrange the chairs two and half metres away from each other. Line up the Cub Scouts behind the chairs and number them off. When a number is called, all Cub Scouts with that number have to try and put three pencils on their own chair. Pencils must only be picked up one at a time. They may be picked up from other chairs as well as the middle. Call ‘Shere Khan is coming‘ to stop each turn and the Cub Scouts should return to their Sixes. The winning Six can then be determined.“
7.35 Baldeo & the Wolves
Cub Scouts in circle representing the Jungle. Shere Khan's skin (bean bag) in centre. One cub, Buldeo, is sent outside, and the keeper Mowgli is chosen. Buldeo comes in, goes through the circle and tries to steal the skin. He must go back through the circle the same place he came in. The second Buldeo touches the skin, Mowgli leaves his place and tries to tip him before he leaves the circle.
7.45 Bagheera’s Prize
Equipment; Keys or coins in a tin.
‘Bagheera, the panther, taught Mowgli to move silently in the jungle and we would sometimes lie beneath a tree and Mowgli would try and creep up on him without being heard’
One Cub Scout is Bagheera, with the juicy bone (keys etc) Other Cub Scouts in turn try to get close enough to take the bone away. If Bagheera opens his eyes and sees anyone move, they must go back to the start again. The bone should be something that will make a lot of noise
7.55 Night Hunt.
Equipment: Chalk, blindfold, pillow.
The aim of the game is for Cub Scouts who are animals to avoid being caught by the person in the middle. A lane of about 2.5 metres is drawn down centre of playing area. All line up at one end of the hunt area with a Cub Scout (blindfolded and with pillow) in centre lane. The "animals have to hop to other end without putting a foot down and without getting hit. Change person in middle for anyone caught and then change regularly
8.05 Poison Snake
Run as a relay, each Cub Scout kicks a length of rope a set course.
8.15 Hunting with Bagheera
Equal teams at end of hall. In front of each team at the other end of hall is a chair. Tell Cub Scouts a little of how Bagheera was the greatest hunter, but must important thing to remember is to stalk quietly. "Softly, softly, catches the monkey". On GO the leader of each team holds the hand of the Cub Scouts behind on so on down the line so that they are linked as one line. It is not a race, the quietest team down the hall, through the legs of the chair and back wins.
8.25 Closing Parade
Now I am going to tell you a story about a man cub called Mowgli who was taught the way of the jungle by Baloo the brown bear and Bagheera the black panther. Mowgli came to be in the jungle because Shere Khan the tiger had killed his parents. He was taken in by Mother Wolf and Father Wolf, which made Shere Khan very angry. They decided to call him Mowgli which means frog because his skin was smooth and with no hair like a frog's.
He stayed with Mother Wolf and Father Wolf and their own four cubs until the night of the full moon when they set off for the Council Circle. Shere Khan claimed the man cub was his but Mother Wolf and Father Wolf were not to be ordered around by someone not from the pack. It was here that Akela reminded the wolves that if there was an argument about a cub, two people would have to speak for him. Baloo said "I will speak for the man Cub" and Bagheera gave a newly killed bull to pay for the Man Cub's life. So he was allowed to stay in the jungle with Baloo and Bagheera who taught him many things. Lord Baden Powell based the Cub Scout section on the jungle story.
