Cub Camps 2009

Cub Camps



Both our Cub Packs combine on these occasions to have fun and learn new skills.

On average the pack has 7 camps a year and 18 nights under canvas.

Our camping season starts in April and goes through to November.

The high lights for most are a Family camp where over 150 people spend 3 nights under canvas, and the summer camp of 7 nights.

Summer Camp - August 15th - 22nd  - 7 nights

Location Buddens Camp site Dorset.

20 cubs (14 Boys, 6 Girls), 2 Scouts, 7 leaders, 2 Mini buses and a Van.


Buddens Camp site is truly huge!

It has sufficient activities that should you chose you would not have to leave it.

Our program of activities made full use of these activities helped by leaders with suitable activity permits. We also as a group did some firsts!

The activities the Cubs undertook were:-

Climbing,  Abseiling, Canoeing, Raft building, Swimming, Open fire cooking, Hiking, Caving, Archery, Shooting.

The below activities are section firsts. Sleeping in a Bivouac. Night time Abseil, Bouldering, and an Abseil into the caving complex, we were the first ever group to do this.

We did two offsite visits to Bovington Tank Museum and Splashdown water park.

A truly great camp on a great camp site.

We will be back!
