RECENT CUB EVENTS

13-15th May 2016

District Cub Camp

This camp celebrated 100 years of Cub Scouting with the theme being ‘Sports and Games from the past 100 years’. There was a variety of activities based on this theme for the Cubs to enjoy on both the Saturday and Sunday with a Birthday Party held on the Saturday evening complete with party games and birthday cake. All in all an excellent camp.

Spring Activity afternoon

This afternoon at Horley camp site was enjoyed by a dozen Cubs who were able to do a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities which included ‘fishing for ducks’ and making peg butterflies indoors then outdoors in the woods building bivouacs, blindfolded following a string trail and hunting for chocolates. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the afternoon with some very tired looking Cubs greeting their parents at the end of the afternoon.

Night Hike and Sleepover

Sixteen Cubs took part in the night hike which saw them hike a four mile route around Shutford on a dry still evening, and not too muddy underfoot. The hike was followed by a sleepover at Headquarters with parents picking up at 10.00 on the Sunday morning. Always a popular event, very enjoyable for both Cubs and Leaders and another chance for Cubs to work on the requirements of the ‘Outdoor Challenge’ badge.

Tree Ninja

The Scout Association has declared 2015 to be the ‘Year of Adventure’ for Cub Scouts and are encouraging Packs to give their Cubs the opportunity to do more adventurous activities this year. As a Pack, we already do a lot of the suggestions that were on the recommended list but to give the more adventurous Cubs an opportunity to do something different, we arranged a day out at a High Ropes Course and invited our Scouts to join us.

Night Hike & Sleepover

This event is quite popular with the Cubs and Leaders and has become an annual favourite. The Cubs are used to doing hiking and walks with the Pack in the daylight but it is nice to be able to give them the opportunity to walk in the dark, at the same time coping with winter weather.

District Cub Scrapheap Challenge

This year’s Challenge was subtitled ‘Egg Challenge’ as it involved constructing something on wheels that could carry an egg, with the aim being for the construction to be raced over a short distance without the egg falling out. The event was held in the Sports Hall of Cooper School at Bicester, which was an ideal venue for racing the constructions.
