Youlbury Prize Camp (17-19 May 2013)

This camp is our Pack prize for winning the Our Sporting Adventure competition! It is open to all of our current Cubs (including those leaving at Easter) but there are only 30 spaces available and we have 37 Cub Scouts ... we expect that everyone who wants to go will be able to - as there are always a few who we can't persuade along - but if we do have too many by the deadline then priority will be given to those who completed more of the challenges during the competition.

The camp is an "Outdoor Challenge Weekend", with all equipment, activities and catering supplied by Youlbury, and the usual cost would be £49 per Cub. Though it is a prize we will still have some associated camp costs and we will therefore be charging £5 per Cub who wishes to attend - a bargain price for two nights away with food and activities! The programme and activity details will be finalised nearer the date but Youlbury have provided the following by way of example of the sorts of things we might be doing:

Friday: Arrive at 7pm - set up camp, scavenger hunt around Youlbury, supper and bed (sleeping in tents)
Saturday: Breakfast (cereal, sausages, beans), using axes and saws, fire lighting, lunch (cooked on fire), emergency aid, archer, dinner, camp fire, supper and bed
Sunday: Breakfast (cereal, bacon, beans), shelter building, crate stacking, lunch (sandwiches and crisps), take down tents, presentations and closing ceremony, leave at 3pm

Cubs will earn their Outdoor Challenge badge during the camp, and will also complete activities which contribute towards other badges.

Note that Youlbury are experienced in catering for young people with particular dietary requirements so as long as these are specified on the form the menu will be adapted accordingly for these Cubs.

All places now taken for this camp! Health forms are required no later than Thursday 16 May (ie the day before camp starts). You will need to complete and submit a Cub health form for each Cub attending and an Adult health form for each adult, no later than the Thursday before the camp starts.
