Boating Day

See reports and photos: 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

We run this boating day every year. It is open to all Cubs in the District but is always over-subscribed, so we give priority to Packs who haven't attended the previous year. Packs get 10 spaces each and we have 40 Cubs for the morning session and another 40 for the afternoon session. This day used to enable Cubs to complete their Water Activities badge (provided they completed their booklets, which were provided in advance). We will review which badges it goes towards in the future!
