Jupiter and Apollo packs spent a fun packed week end at the Winter Knights Camp.
27 Cubs Camped in the Kath Batts building at Belchamps. The weather turned out good. The theme of the camps was Knights of the round table. We made shields, tabards, helmets, catapults other activities included soft archery and a most enjoyable game of capture the sword.
While at camp we all completed our Backwoods cooking badge making cheesy chips and a cornet marshmallows chocolate afters although a few did get a bit burnt. We all managed to light a fire with a spark stick.
We had no complaints about the food, I think the popcorn and hot chocolate went down well while we watched a film.
We will have to get our thinking hats on to decide a them for next year.
