John's Lee Wood 2011

blobsIn June the 172nd and 91st Cubs went to John’s Lee Wood. We staid in four small clearings (called Magpie, Squirrel, Stoat and Robin) at the far end of site and we pitched our tents among the trees.  There were 33 Cubs on camp so this was one the biggest we have done so far.

We arrived on site at 19:00 on Friday and settled in to our tents. The weather was a bit wet but we got on with it anyway and had a good look around the site before settling down for the night with CoCo and hot-dogs. On Saturday we made a start on our Naturist badge by identifying trees and catching bugs. After that we then went on a fantastic walk through the local countryside. After lunch we plaid games organized by the older Cubs as part of their Outdoor+ badge before heading off to do some archery and to play a 5-a-side football competition. After tea we tried out the caving experience and did some more Cub organized games. Finally we had a camp-fire with songs, and more CoCo and cakes for supper. Bingo was very happy as we sang his B-I-N-G-O song!

The weather was better on Sunday so we light fires and did some "back-woods" cooking. After there was only time to visit the camp shop before we had to pack away and head home (tired and a bit muddy) for another year.   Everyone had a really good time!
