Monday at Walesby

A lot of tired faces in the morning as the leaders woke the Cubs up for breakfast and to pack their kit away. All of the Cubs had to pack up all their clothes into their bags and clear their tents so that when the parents arrived they could be taken time. It took quite a long time for the Cubs to get their tents sorted out but as soon a they got them cleared they were allowed out to take part in the activities going on in the morning.   It is no easy feat to strike camp when you have so many Cubs and Leaders. We are very grateful to the parents that came early to give the lend a hand packing equipment away as it is hard work. Once the tents were down they were packed into a van and taken back to the Scout Hut.   While the adults had been busy sorting the camp out the Cubs had been busy making in the craft tents, riding the quad bikes, climbing the wobble pole, and shooting arrows at the Archery range. The Cubs have managed to pack in so many activities this weekend they’ll be due a lot of badges when they go back to Cubs. Camp was dismissed when the activities had finished and all the Cubs had returned. Each Cub received a badge for their camp blanket to show that they have been to...

A much better night’s sleep last night than Friday! We started off with breakfast as usual, and off to the morning activities all around the site. With a lot of Cubs finding the craft tent and making their own bags as well as lots of other crafts. The Red Arrows Flight simulator thrilled the Cubs as they twisted and turned through the sky. At lunch time there was a street party in front of the main stage where all of the camp came together to have their lunch, followed by the Scout Radio team playing music. The BBC where also around with a camera so you might be able to see us on the news! In the afternoon the swimming pool opened and some very brave Cubs took a dip in what turned out to be a very cold swimming pool. Other Cubs tried their hand at Archery and flew down the zip wire with speed. After a dinner of chicken curry the Cubs were ambushed by the leaders with an array of water balloons. However this backfired when I ended up soaked more than the Cubs. In the evening all of the leaders had a go at the bag drop, but from the top board. Everything is saying don’t jump but you can’t argue with 33 Cubs chanting JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! Once the sky had gone dark the closing ceremony finished off with a amazing firework display. It didn’t take long for the Cubs to go to sleep tonight either, but we have an early start in the morning to get our kit all packed up ready for...

Camp had settled down around 1am and had woken up by 5am. It is waaay to exciting to sleep at cub camp. We were booked into lake activities in the morning so after a full English breakfast and the washing up done we set off for the lake. All the cubs had a go rafting, canoeing, kayaking and body boarding down a water slide. It was great fun and a little bit cold. Once we had returned to camp and dried off the cubs were given free roam of the site to go and have a go at any of the activities they liked the look of. Lunch consisted of a range of sandwiches and crisps. We also started tucking into the pile of cakes donated by parents. After lunch a lot of the cubs went off to queue up early for activities especially the bag drop. Some of the other activities that our cubs have done include quad biking, climbing, a cave maze and a brilliant Harris Hawk display. Spaghetti Bolognese was for tea tonight before heading off for the evening entertainments like the camp fire and fun fair rides. With a large group having a go at Air Rifle Shooting. After an adventure packed day the cubs were all in bed and quite for 11.30 this evening giving us leaders more time for good nights sleep ready for another day of exciting...

Friday Night

So the camp is set up and the kettle is on. The cubs went off exploring the site and making new friends. We saw the opening ceremony fireworks and disco. Tomorrow we have lake activities in the morning and free rein to find all the activities and have a go. There was also a lot of water getting splashed about when the water was filled...

Camp is Set Up

So the camp is set up! A huge thank you to the few parent that came to help us set up the tents last night it was much appreciated. We just got it done before it went dark! We just have one leaders tent and the cooking tent to put up when everyone arrives this evening. Double check that you have your name in everything you are bringing with, and ask for 1st Ripley upon arrival if you can’t see one of the leaders....
