The beavers enjoyed an introduction to campfire cooking on Wednesday. Alongside the do’s and don’ts, they managed to cook sausages, toast marshmallows, make themselves smores and have an impromptu sing-song.
You knew that, if the Cubs organised the evening themselves, there would be sweets involved, and that’s how it turned out!
They started with a paper aeroplane design challenge (sweets as prizes) to a paper aeroplane race (sweets as prizes) – won by Alfie.
The ladder game was followed by – which team can build the highest Polo tower (Kai’s group) (you can guess what the prize was). The evening finished off with an eating-sweets-with-chopsticks challenge (no prize necessary).
Let’s hope they all cleaned their teeth properly before bed! Well done to the Sixers and Seconders

The cubs were given a challenge this week, to build a free-standing structure which could carry the weight of a brick.
The three sixes each had a good attempt – some more successfully than others.
The evening finished up with a game called ‘Tidy Up’ where junior members of each six had to adorn their sixers with as much equipment as possible (without dropping any). This wasn’t just a test of strength for the sixers, but tested their creativity in finding new ways to hold everything!
We are collecting the Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers again this year, so if you shop at Sainsbury’s please make sure you get the vouchers and bring them along to meetings. Last year we collected enough vouchers to buy lots of sports equipment and a set of orienteering markers.
We cooked out scouts backwoods-style this year. We had to light fires and get them up to cooking temperature before we could eat!
I will post photos of pancakes if we get that far.
