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.
“Every young person deserves an adventure” & that is what 30 4th Sevenoaks Cubs did today at Lower Grange Farm the Kent Scout HQ! Climbing, Zorbing, pedal carting & much more. Thanks to all the parents, leaders and young leaders that gave up their afternoon.
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 Young Leaders put on a fantastic Halloween party this year, with zombies, buckets of brains, creepie-crawlies as well as the usual apple bobbing and bowls of flour. They also filled the hall with spookie smoke and eerie lights!
