Cub Scout Sleepover 2013
European Trek
European Trek A sleepover based around European Countries and then a day out at Kings Oak cooking, hiking, enjoying a Wide Game and a campfire to finish.
  Saturday started with some Beavers joining us to learn The National Anthem, play some games and make an electronic game which lights a bulb up if they connected the correct saint and country.


We all tried Shortbread from Scotland, Barra Brieth from Wales, Soda Bread from Ireland and scones with cream from England
Beavers They all ate a packed tea and before it was time for the Beavers to depart

Then the Cubs started

the European section of the trek

Bases were located at various houses around Cheam which required the team leader to follow a map to find each base
  Waffles were made at the Belguim Base waffles Italy introduced the idea of blindfold tasting Ice Cream. Would you recognise Chocolate and ginger or Banofee Ice cream or Toffee honeycombe?

Football scoring was based in Germany as

they have got two teams to the

UEFA Champions League Final German football


Fishing took place at the Norwegian base

  France lent itself to the tour de France. How quickly could you cycle 300m when you were 8 or 9 cycling followed by an adventure course to cross the Pyrenees before arriving in Spain

    On returning to the Scout HQ for an indoor sing song it was very clear that many miles had been walked and there were some tired Cubs
  Sunday had the Cubs up and ready for an early departure to Kings Oak on Box Hill for a day of traditional Scouting Activities. Tent pitching, collecting firewood to make a fire to cook their own meal, before an afternoon on the Heath for a Wide Game and Scavenger hunt. After Tea they enjoyed a real campfire to sing their songs before once again returning to HQ for a long sleep.
  Over the course of the weekend we were able to complete Global and Outdoor challenge Badges, Local Knowledge activity badge and Nights Away (1 and 5) with Cubjam just three weeks away some of our Cubs will achieve their 10 Nights Away Badge shortly
