CUBS COUNTY CAMP 2016

On 24th June, the Irthlingborough Cub Scouts joined over 1000 Cubs from across the County of Northamptonshire's Wildest 100th Birthday for 2 nights of camping and activities in a very large field in Overstone Park.

As we gazed upon the endless sea of tents and joined the procession of Cubs snaking around the site for the Opening Ceremony, we realised  how large and awe-inspring the gathering was and what an exciting weekend we had ahead of us.

Despite the occasional thunderstorm and downpour, the Cubs enjoyed a wide range of activities including zorbing,shooting,inflatable tournaments,laser tag, tank driving, petrol go-karting,clay pigeon shooting,axe throwing,crafts and clay pigeon shooting to name just a few!

At night the Cubs settled into their new 'Cub Friendly Tents', a recent donation, in preparation for another day packed with activities before returning home on Sunday, muddy and extremely tired from a fun filled and memorable weekend.

Special thanks to Steve Kurn, Lance Goodman, Chloe Morris and Lyle Abbott for their help and support during at the weekend and to Paul Hudson for towing our Trailer.
