Outings and trips

We try to go on plenty of outings and trips with our Cubs - these are listed below. We mostly don't have any additional resources for these, but perhaps it will provide some inspiration. We have also provided links to our photo/report pages were applicable - and our badge matrix references the outings and trips that go towards badge work and the table below also tells you what's covered.
