Wet Cub Camp

Date: 31st Jul 2019 Author: Richard Smith

Wet Cub Camp! The Cubs attended the Groups campsite The Cabin on Raby estate for a very wet weekend! Friday night they settled into camp after a short Campfire ready for Saturday morning. Saturday arrived the Cubs had breakfast and the Rain arrived ! and it rained and rained and rained…… the cubs spent the morning doing craft and playing games in the cabin but still the rain came SO off to Barnard Castle for an afternoon swimming at the pool. The inflatables were put out into the pool and all the Cubs managed to get to the end but not one leader could do it! Martin was determined but he still couldn’t do it! next time maybe. The cubs arrived back at camp for an indoor BBQ tea then some movies before bed.
Sunday all were up, and site was closed, and we set off for Roarsome to spend the afternoon at the massive indoor play area. The cubs had a fantastic time and it made up for the wet camp!
