The Patrol sites are getting organised as they need to cook their own dinner.
Fire Shelter No Cubs on site so the evening passed quite peacefully, except for the preparations for the rain that was expected, so the fire shelter was erected. Camp Rules
Day Two and the Cubs arrive almost on time, but so does the rain. Inital activities included changing out of uniform and into camp kit. Their uniform was then hung up on coat hangers so they would stay nice for Bird World. We discussed the camp rules, issued diaries, collected pocket money and started on our knotting. Reef Knots and Sheetbends for the cubs. The scouts took over the large frame tent to build their rafts.The rain stopped so the cubs were able to get their kit into the tents.
