This year cub camp will take place between the 7th – 9th July. It will be held at the PACCAR scout campsite in Chalfont Heights. This is a professionally run campsite by the scout association which is used by a number of different scout groups around the area. Its near Chalfont St Peter which is east of Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire. The Address is: PACCARS Camp Site, Denham Lane, Chalfont St Peter, Gerrards Cross. The postcode for your sat nav is: SL9 0QJ.

The camp will start on the Friday night. Cubs will be dropped off around 6:00 pm. When everyone has arrived and we have done a Grand How, we will talk about the plans for the weekend. We will then do a wide game to burn off some energy and excitement and hopefully get them ready to sleep !!

On the Saturday morning after breakfast we will do a campsite inspection to make sure they have all washed, got their kit and tents in order and are ready for the days activities. We will then spend the day doing a range of activities and games around the theme of ‘Camping Cooking’  to develop their knowledge, skills and interest about camping and cooking out doors.  This will culminate in a banquette on Saturday night which everyone will have been involved in creating.

After the banquet we will join up with 1st Wargrave Beavers, who are also doing a 1 night camp at the same location, and we will have a sing-off between the Cubs and Beavers around a campfire. Again hopefully we will have tired them out so they are ready for a second good nights sleep under canvas.

Sunday morning we will break camp, which the cubs will need to help with, and then if there is time, do a couple of games before parents arrive to take them home at 11:00 am.
