Region Cub Camp

What a great camp!! Well done Kawana Cubs for being so well behaved and for considering others.  We had 5 cubs who had never been on a cub camp before and a couple of others who have only been on one camp.  So great work all of our older cubs for helping to teach the newer ones the ways of the cub scout camping world!!  And new cubs you did an amazing job considering this is one of the biggest camps you will go to!!  There were 117 cubs altogether at this camp.  So hang in there the next camp will be a breeze for you!!
Enjoy some of the pictures from the camp below.

After a torrential downpour of rain, which seemed like a year’s worth of rain in 30mins, things seemed to dry out quickly and the cubs just got on with it.  It was great to see Kawana cubs mixing with cubs from all different packs and getting in there and trying all of the activities.

Some activities we did on camp include:

  • Canoeing on Dunethin Lake – I think the cubs spent as much time in the water as they did in the canoes!!
  • Geo-caching – sort of like orienteering but a lot cooler.
  • JOTA – connecting with scouts all around the world over the internet/air – the cubs tried walkie talkies, morse code, and semaphore flags.
  • Lots of games and craft activities.
  • Go-cart racing,
  • Sumo wrestling,
  • Obstacle course,
  • Waterslide, and
  • Painting a block wall with international symbols.
  • We had a special campfire with lots of singing, skits and a fire twirler!!  On Sunday morning we walked to the top of Dunethin Rock for our Scouts Own and some reflection time – what an amazing view!!

If you are missing any belongings or have gained some belongings can you please bring them to cubs on Friday night and we will try to find rightful owners!!
