Ten of our Cubs joined Cubs from all over Oxford had a fantastic day on the water on Saturday 21 June. The 33rd Oxford Boat Base hosted almost 80 Cubs over the course of the day and we took part in the morning session. The Cubs completed special water activities passports in advance, to check they knew how to stay safe, and they each got to try out three different activities: kayaking, canoeing and pulling. All of the Cubs earned their Water Activities badges.

We had a glorious sunny day for the event, but this didn’t mean that the Cubs didn’t get wet – a lot of them opted to take a swim after one – or in some cases all – of their boating sessions!

Thank you to everyone who helped out, including the leaders from 33rd Oxford and 22nd Oxford – and others – who gave up their Saturday to give the Cubs this wonderful  day.
