18 cubs have just returned from Caddihoe where they attended the District Camp last weekend along with other cub packs from the district.
A brilliant weekend was had by all, with the theme of Team Work the Cubs took part in many activities including Ballistas, Rocket Launching, Trading Post Challenge, Shelter Building, Blindfold Trail and Team Games. They all also had the chance to cool down with a great waterfight where the leader’s got caught too!
Sunday morning all the cubs took part in a cross country run, all cheering each other on before having a BBQ lunch and heading home very tired after a great weekend making new friends and working as a team.
Hemyock Scouts have been chosen as one of three charities for Waitrose Wellington Community Matters for May.
