On Friday 7th March, Cubs arrived at the Will Smith Chalet at Overstone for a 2-night Pack Holiday.After serious safety and conduct instructions from Akela, setlled in and after a pizza and a mini-NightHike through the woods, organised by one of the Scouts, as an attempt to wear the Cubs out before bedtime.
Saturday started with some free time before 16 Beavers arrived. Everyone was split into 4 mixed groups and enjoyed Den Building,Backwoods Cooking,Tent Pitchin and rehearsing for the Campfire Talent Show.
Pasta Bolognese and Ice Cream Sundaes were served, with the Cubs doing the washing up!
After a few Leaders' eyebrows were singed whilst cooking marshmallows at the Campfire the Beavers went home at 8pm - tired and sleepy!
The Cubs had a Movie Night, with Popcorn but many of them were off to sleep before the end end of the show!
On Sunday the Cubs were tasked with protecting a raw egg from smashing when dropped from the Chalet Balcony. Imaginative contraptions were used to carry ot this serious operation......
Finally we reflected on what we had achieved before the Cubs were re-united with their parents at 2pm.
A huge 'thank-you' must go to Akela (Karen H) ,Ashley and Conan (Scouts) ,Tabitha (Explorers) , Lance, Fred, Liam, Steve, Chloe, Claire and Sam (Leaders and Helpers)
