SLEEPOVER 2-3 May 2009

Over the May Bank holiday 28 Cubs took part in our sleepover which was held at our own campsite, Kings Oak, on Boxhill.

all cubs





The sleepover started just before lunchtime on the Saturday with the Cubs taking part in a “Getting to Know you Game”- we discovered that someone had been a mascot for the first England game at the new Wembley Stadium, someone had been into the tiger enclosure at Chessington and someone would like to own a mongoose! getting to know you  



pingpong slalom After lunch, the Cubs took part in an assault course, gaining points for their six by balancing speed against accuracy. This involved climbing through hoops, batting a ping pong ball around a slalom course and landing in a paddling pool full of balls to find a plastic duck! Great fun was had by all and thanks to the young leaders for rounding up all the plastic balls!! balls galore


Eating a meal campfire

A competitive game of football rounders took us up to dinner time. We all ate at tables out in the open and hungry tummies were filled with food cooked on an open fire. After our meal the cubs got their tents ready for the night and returned to take part in a campfire. The whole of BoxHill must have heard us singing “Alice the Camel”, “Stirring the purple stew” and “singing in the rain” to name but a few. After hot chocolate and a hot dog the cubs made their way to their tents for the night and hopefully a good sleep!

The following morning the Cubs were up bright and early! After a wash and a filling breakfast we set off for a hike on Headley Heath. The weather was kind to us and the Cubs spent the morning walking and taking in the sights and sounds of the Heath. After a snack and a biscuit we returned to the Oak.

Shortly after we got back, the parents arrived to take the children home. Tired but happy!

  We hope that all the Cubs enjoyed the sleepover and their first night spent at Kings Oak.
