This years Xmas camp was as always hosted by Shere Khan and ably assisted by both Junior Shere Khan minis, Robyn and Alex and the silent secret leader in the background (shhh it’s Mrs Khan)- Akela and Kaa tried to keep up!
Friday evening saw fun and games at the Joey Dunlop Treasure island frame, followed by tent building, hammock hanging and cinema construction – Big screen movies, snowflake building (not just any snowflake – Cubs 3D snowflakes!!) and bed..
Breakfast on saturday and into the Cubbywagon and off to Dundonald for clip and climb. Everyone participated well and got up a wall and the stairway to heaven was topped by several – well done.
W5 was visited and not an exhibit left un-cubbed…. winter wonderland express train carried us on a winter ride and then off to climbit where cubs climbed and leaders coffee’d….
Burger King in Antrim (now theres a story…..) and off to the Antrim Castle gardens… lovely lit up and a reindeer hunt ensued….. Back to the hall and Bed….
NOPE! no bed for us!! time to build a couple of hundred boxes and make forts! Castle Khan was built and the scouts amongst us slept in it…
Sunday arrives… no-one wakes early…. Breakfast, pass the pudding relays, Wafting and Flaffing competitions and of course… Craft time – where cubs sewed a stuffed Christmas tree decoration.
Good fun by all.
Well done everyone who took part.
“Leaders favourite parent appreciation award” was jointly won by Tyler and Ronins mums for refueling the leaders with caffeine….
