Clonmacken Cubs Broadford Weekend and Investiture

Our cubs are just back from a great weekend in Broadford Girl Guide House.We had 20 young lads and 3 Leaders.They boys had a great time building their own forts in the woods as well as hiking to the lake and also a night hike.
During the weekend we held an investiture and welcomed 10 new boys into the cub pack as well as investing Ashley Lally as a Leader.After the investiture we held a scouts own where the biys reflected on some of their best moments in their lifes,we finished the evening with a campfire and party.Thanks to Group Leader Des McKeown and Group Secretary Catherine Clancy for coming out for Investiture.It was great to see so many parents coming out for the Investiture,Some of the boys were also presented with their stage 1 First aid badge.
The weekend was a really enjoyable event and I think we can safely say that the boys will sleep easy tonight after very little sleep over the weekend.
Well done to all the cubs on their behavior and a big thank you to Mike,Ger and Ashley for making the weekend possible for the boys
