For the final meeting of the year, the Cubs went to Broomley Grange Adventure Centre. Under the watchful eye of the Centre’s instructors, Stocksfield’s cubs tested out the assault course and this zip wire.

Cub Camp 2014

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.

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.
