The Older cubs who are due to go up to Scouts in September joined the Scouts and Venturers for a nights camping in the Field in Cfratloe.The cubs were very much looking forward to this event and meet with the scouts at the Grotto in Cratloe on Saturday to hike to the Field.The first activity for the cubs was absailing in the woods and for most of the cubs it was a first time absailing.It was then onto the camping field where sleeping arrangements were set up for the night.Again a first for the cubs was when they were allowed to bivy for the night.The also took part in Backwoods cooking.
A special word must go to the Scouts and Venturers and the Leaders who helped the boys all weekend and made them feel as if they were part them and not just cubs still.The boys learned so much this weekend from the Scout Leaders and Scouts.
Hopefully this is the first of many events in which the scouts and cubs go away together as it really makes it an easier transition from cubs into scouts when the time comes to move up.
Thanks to the scout Leaders for making this such an enjoyable event for the cubs
