Cubs District Centenary Camp

Posted on August 2nd, 2016 by Tony M


Cubs from the 8th Tynemouth joined in with 54 Cubs from other Groups within the District over the weekend of the 8th – 10th July 2016 and attended our District’s Cub Centenary Camp. The 8th had 24 Cubs attending the camp from our two packs.

The camp was held on the field behind our District’s Powburn Adventure Centre, which is located just outside of Powburn Northumberland. The Cubs were put into Colour Groups which were a mix of Cubs from the different Groups attending.  On Friday evening a wide game was played after everyone had settled in and this lasted until supper time.  During the course of the weekend the Cubs took part in a variety of activities which included:

  • Archery
  • Crate Stacking
  • Pioneering
  • Rifle Shooting
  • Orienteering
  • Grass Sledging
  • Climbing Wall
  • Craft Tent
  • Inflatable Assault Course/Bouncy Castle
  • Pole Climb

The weather during the weekend was a mixture of warm sunshine and rain but this did not stop the Cubs from enjoying themselves and the activities on offer.  On Saturday evening the Cubs had a disco before going out to the campfire, which unfortunately took place whilst it was raining.  But this didn’t dampen their enthusiasm or volume with the campfire songs!!
On the Sunday the Inflatable Assault Course was brought in and the colour groups where challenged with getting through this in the fastest time possible. Unfortunately the rain came along again and hampered the White Group’s second run and the Cubs ended up getting soaked.  So, a stop was put to that activity until it dried up and then the timing resumed.  The winning Colour Group on for the Assault Course was the Red Group.  Some of the activities enjoyed on Saturday were again on offer during the Sunday and everyone was kept busy up until the coaches where waiting to take everyone back home.

Photographs from the Camp can be seen in the Gallery section of the website.
