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.
19th March 2016
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.

The event was held in the Sports Hall of Cooper School at Bicester, which was an ideal venue for racing the constructions.
