Cub Camp Questions?

If your Cub is going to camp, John is holding a meeting about it at the Scout Hut at 1pm on Saturday the 22nd of August.
He will be going through the programme, discussing meals, medicine, first aid, home sickness, friendship groups and pocket money.

You don’t have to attend but if your cub has not been away with us before the more we know about their like and dislikes the better we can care for them.

If your cub has any concerns about going and you can’t attend please let John know so we can make the best plan for your cub so they get the most enjoyment out of this camp.

Cub Camp 2014

This year’s cub camp will be held at Kingswood, Hexham. Some of you may know it – it’s often used by schools.

Camp will be from the 22nd to the 25th of August – the bank holiday weekend. We are booked in for a range of fun activities including bush craft, survival skills, zip wire, nature walks, fencing and a scrap heap challenge!

We will be staying in lodges and all  meals are provided. Transport will be via parents’ cars – the address is:

Dukeshouse Wood, Fellside, Hexham, Northumberland, NE46 1TP – see this map.

Cub Camp

We have a provisional booking at Moor House Adventure Centre just outside Durham. We will be going from 3pm on Thursday the 29th of August to 10am on Sunday 1st September. See http://moor-house.org.uk/index.php for more details.

We will be camping and are planning a programme of exciting activities. This is a Scout activity centre so the activities are run by qualified staff. This will be our first time camping for four years and we are really excited about this and looking forward to teaching the cubs a range of new skills!

If your cub is interested in going the cost will be around £125 pounds. Can you please let John Walker know if your cub would like to go asap (email cub_leaders@1ststocksfieldscouts.org.uk).

In the past some parents have come along to support their cub. If you feel you may want to do this please let John know, if you do come along it would be great if you could muck in and lend a hand. The cost for supporters would be £4.50 per day plus food. You will need your own tent.

More details will follow.
