23 June 2018: District Boating Day


Five of our Cubs joined Cubs from all over Oxford and had a fantastic day on the water on Saturday 23 June. The 33rd Oxford Boat Base hosted around 70 Cubs over the course of the day and we took part in the morning session. All of the Cubs attending earned their Nautical Skills Level 2, Paddle Sports Level 1 and gained two sessions towards their Time on the Water badges.

We had a a lovely dry 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 both – 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.
