On Saturday May 28th, 7 Cubs and 4 Leaders descended on to Gilwell Park for Cubjam 2016, with 1,500 others, for a week-long camp full of fun and activities.

The theme for the camp was the"Wild West". We arrived at 1pm and settled into camp life. In the evening we attended the Opening Ceremony to watch the activities and the formal Opening Ceremony.

Sunday, after breakfast, the Cubs went off to enjoy the many activities such as zorbing, crafts, archery ,shooting and F1 Go-Karts to name just a few!

On Tuesday we assembled for our trip to London. It was very wet and cold that day but the Cubs enjoyed their visit to the Imperial War Museum and then travelling on the Clippers down the River Thames.

In the evening we enjoyed more activities including the Climbing Wall.

Later the Chief Scout Bear Grylls joined us at the Camp.

On Thursday we took part in the Carnival and Picnic to Celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouting.

Two of our own Cubs, Daisy and Ryan, were interviewed on BBC Radio Northampton's Outside Broadcast.

Friday soon came around and it was time to go home after a very busy and tiring week.

Many thanks must go to Karen, Lance and Chloe for all their hard work over the week.

We had as much fun as the Cubs!

Thanks must also go to Paul Hudson for towing our trailer to and from Gilwell and Andrew Baker (coach driver and parent) for transporting us.
