A few jobs for over the Easter holidays to get ready for Camp Northeast. All cubs will need to put together an Indian costume (Apache/Cherokee/Mohawk) plus make friendship bracelets or something similar to trade at the camp with other groups at the trade fair.
Don’t forget Tuesday 15th April at the playground in the Fair Green at 7pm – see you then!
Please see document below for song lyrics for the campfire.

We all had a wonderful slumber night in Girley Hall on Sat 22nd with 36 Cubs taking part. The weather was kind to us that evening for our 2 (more like 3) hour hike around Girley Bog. This proved very popular with everyone as we got to see parts of the bog we’d never been to and to experience the new boardwalk across the bog. If anyone gets a chance it’s well worth a visit but wear wellies! We saw lots of frog spawn along the way and tried very hard to lose footwear and indeed Cubs in the very boggy last section of the walk. We hope that all the mucky boots have dried out by now!
After a lovely dinner of spag bol, bread and Swiss roll sleeping arrangement were sorted and the evening entertainment began.
Some Cubs made flapjacks for the next, we had a quiz and presentation about oral hygiene where lots was learned about the good and bad foods for your teeth. Lastly we had a ‘Cubs got Talent’ show. We had about 26 acts in all varying from joke telling, singing, dancing, mini dramas and instrumentals. We all had great fun and we’re highly entertained. Simon Cowell missed the evening flight to Dublin but we’ve passed on our recommendations to him as to who should keep going!
Unfortunately the rain scuppered our plans for s’mores on a camp fire but after hot chocolate it was time for sleep!
After some sleep, an early start and a great cooked breakfast it was time to tidy up and find owners for various items of clothes! We had a morning of team activities which were great fun and finished up with snacks including flapjacks, fruit and popcorn.
Roll on Camp North East!

Both Tuesday and Wednesday night Cubs had a lovely 10km hike in Virginia Woods on Sunday morning. We definitely got the best of the day as it remained dry and sometimes sunny until just before we finished up.
All the children were well prepared with the correct gear and there was no sign of ant blisters when we finished!
Well done to everyone involved.
