The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Two Co­bram Cub Scouts were show­ered in glory when they were awarded a Grey Wolf badge, the high­est pos­si­ble award a Cub Scout can re­ceive.

Ben­jamin Hall and Tyson Stanyer won the awards af­ter over­com­ing a se­ries of chal­lenges, in­clud­ing a twohour hike in the bush and an overnight camp.

Ben­jamin said the chal­lenges had been tough but re­ward­ing.

‘‘I’ve learnt a lot at the Scouts. It’s been re­ally fun,’’ he said.

He added the Grey Wolf badge to his grow­ing col­lec­tion, which in­cludes camp­ing, cycling, her­itage, wa­ter­wise, pets, space and first aid badges.

His favourite is the pho­tog­ra­phy badge, which he earned af­ter im­press­ing his Scout lead­ers with his scenic snap­shots around the lo­cal area.

Tyson said the badge would be his re­minder of all the fun he had over the years at Scouts.

‘‘My favourite is games nights, which is re­ally fun,’’ he said.

‘‘I also like the hike nights where we go around town and some­times get free ice-cream.’’

The Year 5 stu­dents were ap­plauded for their achieve­ments at a school as­sem­bly at St Joseph’s.
