Cub Camp – Lees Wood

Cubs Climbing

The cubs had a great weekend at Lees Wood campsite.

On Saturday they shot targets on the Riffle Range, had a go on an Assault Course, cooked dampers on the campfire and climbed a 30ft wall.

We had fish fingers, mash and peas followed by swiss roll and custard for tea, we cooked a few marshmallows, then we joined another group for a  campfire, where we sang lots of songs. After hotdogs the cubs were very tired and went straight to sleep!
On Sunday the cubs had a cooked breakfast, then packed away their belongings. We had a “Scouts Own” where Hathi told the story of “The boy who cried wolf”. After, we did orienteering and Baloo’s group got back first.


Congratulations James!!


Congratulations to James Ward who attained all 33 Cub badges. This includes all of the activity badges, all the Challenge badges, and the Chief Scout’s Silver Award. We are all very proud of James, as this is a massive achievement – james_ward_badges_270_203x270.jpgWell Done James!!  In fact, he is only the 4th Cub Scout ever to have done this – and the first in the County of Bedfordshire. Therefore his name goes down in Scouting history. I’m sure James will want to thank, Tracey, Robin and all the leaders for their support and hard work for helping him with this.

James has had big media coverage this week. He was front page news in the LBO – see the story here LBO, and was interviewed on the Stephen Rhodes Breakfast programme on BBC 3 Counties Radio – see here BBC 3CR. You can listen to the interview – see below.  We also hope that he will be featured in our national Scouting magazine in the next issue.

 James has now moved up into Scouts, and the Scout Leaders are off down to the Scout Shop to stock up on badges!!  Laughing

More evidence that Scouting in Linslade is second to none…….

A great time was had by all, despite a couple of showers.  Thanks to all leaders, helpers and parents that lent a hand to make this camp happen. Thanks to Trevor for the photos.
