Looking after our world - 23rd September 2011

As part of the National Cub Challenge, the cubs enjoyed planting an Olive Tree today.

Cubs started off by running around in Arrowe Park just with their socks on (sorry mom!) - this was to enable them to see how many different seeds they could collect.

Next we scattered items around the playing field - some belong in nature - others did not. Cubs had to collect all the items that did not belong in nature.

this was a good exercise to teach them to clean up after themselves as well...

explaining what would happen if these items just get left lying around - are they bio-degradeable?

Just for fun - we added in the "egg and spoon" race..

doing well ...

excellent work ...

keep going ...

you are doing so well ......

wow - good work .....

what happened?

oh, dear!

and some more...

and more!

The Caracals learnt some knotting today..

District Cub Camp - September 2011

Cubbing Fun - from beginning to end!

Our District Cub Camp was held last weekend and over 60 cubs enjoyed this fun-filled event together with about 15 leaders.
I have randomly selected some photos - just a very few of the millions I take - but unfortunately cannot upload them all...

All "countries" arriving with their flags...

.... and welcome to China ...

and then it was on to Germany

"tikka, takka, tikka, takka"

"oi, oi, oi"

(or something similar!)

and then it was on to Brazil

My camera battery went flat here so missed a few photos....

but just look at this - what a wonderful example for inspection. They earned full marks and deserved every point! These guys were exceptional! Well done to their Akela!

and then on to Switzerland to do some tobogganing

and the archery of William Tell

some "ice hockey" with a difference

camp flag (inside a bottle top)

and of course the wonderful chocolate ....

Next was the USA and what better way to start with the Statue of Liberty herself!

soap carving

and then lots of adventure through the different states..

gold mining

and we closed off with the Cubs doing the Cubs Own.

What a wonderful camp!

Till next Time

Keep Cubbing
