We had thirteen of our Cubs (out of a total of 33) on this fantastic camp aimed at Sixers and Seconder, held at the 28th Oxford HQ in Littlemore.

The camp began at 9am on a somewhat damp Saturday morning, with putting up tents and getting beds set up. The Cubs were split into teams and worked together to decide what they wanted to cook for dinner that night and to plan the game that they wanted to run that afternoon, before making their own lunch.

After lunch they found out all about what to take on a day hike before planning a route which would take them to Sainsbury's (to but dinner supplies) visiting fifteen different roads along the way – Bagheera and Jellyfish proved that it was possible to get to all of them, as long as you’re willing to jog for some of the route!

Back at the Scout HQ it was time to run the games before coming back indoors and cooking up some feasts. Once clearing up from dinner was complete the Cubs had an indoor campfire, then went off to bed, wrapping themselves up warm!

The next morning was lovely and sunny; after a good breakfast the Cubs got into their smartest uniforms, straightened their neckers, attached their poppies and set off for the bus stop. They all looked very smart and were beautifully behaved throughout the ceremony and parade.

Back at the Scout HQ it was time for lunch, before taking the tents down. The sunshine had done a good job of drying them out but we still needed to hang a few of them up indoors to finish off. During the closing ceremony there were prizes for the winning team and five Chief Scout’s Silver Awards were presented to Beth, Jasmine, Oliver, Kyle and Luke.

Thank you to everyone who took part and all the adults who helped make it such a wonderful camp!
