In September we held an overnight Cub Camp at the Scout Hut. On arrival on the Saturday morning the Cubs were put into teams and each team pitched their own sleeping tent on the lawn outside the Scout Hut. After flagbreak and changing out of their uniform the Cubs collected loads of fire wood from the ‘green’ outside the Scout Hut.
After lunch the Cubs were shown how to prepare their wood using an hand axe and each team lit a fire. All of the Cubs cooked their own meal of Sausage, Beans and Potatoes on the fire.They even cooked the Leaders meals and the food was delicious and well cooked. After washing up and clearing away the Cubs enjoyed a good old fashioned camp fire , with a sing song, some silly stories, and a ghost story. After the Cubs had cooked marshmellows on the fire and drank loads of warming hot chocolate they turned in for the night in their tents
On Sunday morning the Cubs worked on their D.I.Y, badge and they each made an insect feeder out of wood and bamboo canes. After lunch the weekend was rounded off with an exciting rifle shooting competition. During all of the activities the Cubs were very carefully supervised by experienced Leaders . It was a great weekend and all of the Cubs had a great weekend. Joseph tells us in his report on the weekend what he thought of the experience.
I had a great time at the Camp. It was also my first Cub camp. My Favourite activity was shooting, however my team didn’t win. Also my other favourite activity was collecting and chopping the wood for the fire. This was the first camping trip I have had for ages. I really enjoyed the Pink Gorilla story around the campfire! The camp was exhilarating , it made me want to go on more camps
