ūüé¨ Watch: I’m A Cub… Get Me Out Of Here!

Posted on Friday, June 22nd, 2018

This is the Cubs 6ers Camp for 2018 at Wilverley Camp Site.

Our theme was: I’m a Cub get Me Out of Here.

We had a fun camping weekend with Friday night’s wide game being challenges to earn Dingo Dollars to buy doughnuts from Kiosk Chil‚Äôs Outback Shack.

Saturday Competition Day was full of Jungle themed challenging activities, run by the fantastically talented Pack Leaders.
(Unfortunately, apologies to those whos base footage has not appeared on this video the Go Pro had a glitch)
Sunday was the Cub Cyclone slip and slide, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the Cubs and Leaders, especially Ollie who got Jungle slimmed!

Thank You to all for a fabulous weekend.

Beavers Wacky Races

Posted on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

On a lovely sunny lunchtime in June the beaver section held its annual Wacky Races and Picnic ‚Äď an opportunity for the beavers and their families from across the district to get together for some fun and to help the community by raising funds for the district charity ‚Äď PICU.

44 young people from 7 groups took the time to make their cars and race them.  There were 7 categories of races for all ages.  After the races the families had their picnics and the young people played games.

Thanks to the district beaver team for all your hard work planning and running the event, to all the families and leaders for attending and to the 13th Group for providing the refreshments.

You raised a massive £127.97p.  Let’s hope we have more young people and all the groups taking part next year and we can raise even more money for charity.
