The Cubs and Beavers went to Woodhouse Park Bristol for our Autumn camp taking part in lots of Adventurous activities from Archery, Low Ropes,Crate Stacking, Climbing, Fire lighting and lots more…
For Beavers it was the first time that they have been sleeping in tents taking part in the Damboree to encourage more Beavers to go camping,

Our Cub and Beavers had an exciting sleepover at the National Maritime Aquarium in Plymouth. We learnt about the life on coral reefs and our local shores and had the opportunity to see lots of different animals from Sharks, Rays, … Continue reading →
Cubs, Scouts and our new Explorer section all got together for an action packed weekend at PGL Osmington Bay just before Easter. The weather was not kind but we all had lots of fun and made lots of memories.
To continue our celebrations of 100 years of Cubs and making 2016 a year of adventure we set off with great excitement to London.
When we arrived we were shown to the Who am I gallery? where we would be sleeping for the evening. We were soon part of the Purple Detectives and off to the Safety briefing followed by a treasure trail around the Modern Times gallery, we even found the fleece from Dolly the sheep the first cloned animal.
We then found out how the eye worked and learnt about colour and light before making our own lamp. After a snack we were on the go again to see an animal show from slugs to snakes to find out how they used their muscles to work. By then it was 11 o’clock at night and the adults were tired but the Cubs were finding it all very exciting to going back to the gallery where we were sleeping. Not much sleep was had by some!
We were up early for breakfast and then off to the IMAX cinema to see a 3D film on life in the Space Station and looking at earth from space, our last workshop was the route of food through our digestive system and what happened to it along the way.
Far too early it was time to go to the shop and leave and we had a much quieter journey home than we did on the way to London.
Had a wonderful weekend at Buddens Scout Centre in Dorset. The Cubs had asked for more water activities so we had a Water themed weekend which included Kayaking, Dragon Boats, Caving and lots of playing in the forest. Lots of fun for all!
Funday is one of the most popular events of the year when both Beavers and Cubs have lots of fun with lots of different activities including Fun Fair, Climbing, Abseiling, Crafts, Drumming and lots more!
