Cub Pack News and Information

Cubs May Camp

Our first 2 night outdoor camp in over 2 years took place at Mill Lane last weekend. The older Beavers, soon to become Cubs, joined us on the first night, sleeping indoors and enjoying a hot dog and chocolate around the campfire.

We focused on camp skills over the weekend, cooking twice on fires, pizza wrap for lunch and foil vegetable and meat parcels for supper as well as dutch oven Jambalaya. We used saws and axes, making mallets and fire strikers.

Human Hungry Hippos has arrived at the 4th!

Testing out Human Hungry Hippos was the final activity for Greatness Cubs this term and was thoroughly enjoyed by all cubs, two scouts, and two young leaders. Even one leader had a go too! As well as enjoying themselves, they learnt how to tie and use a bowline and a figure of eight knot.

Further ‘testing’ will take place at Cubs’ Summer Camp.

The cubs in the Wildernesse pack started their photographer’s badge last week. We have selected the following photos from the hundreds that were taken to give you a taste of what they got up to.

The themes they were asked to capture were:

  • Bivvy Building
  • Navigation
  • Knots
  • The Hut & Grounds
