Once Upon A Camp

Date: 10th May 2018 Author: Scout Websites

Once Upon A Camp something magical happened: Beavers and Cubs from all over Bath joined together for a full weekend of adventures. It was the weekend of 4th May and over 300 young people were gathering at Cleeve Hill Campsite. Amongst them, 30 Beavers and Cubs from 51st Bath. Audible “wow”s were heard as we entered the camping field through the volunteer-built medieval gateway and saw how many tents were set up.

The weekend gave our Beavers and Cubs an enormous range of activities, each in an area named after a famous kingdom (Anglia, Mercia, Wessex and Northumberland). Our members got to try archery, grass sledging, climbing, gun running, aeroball, martial arts and much more besides! They also got to take part in wide games, joining with Beavers and Cubs from other Scout Groups to complete their tasks.

In addition, we all joined together during the opening ceremony and renewed our promises – renewing our commitment to help other people and do our best. During our free time, we also mixed with Beavers and Cubs from other Scout Groups, playing football or exploring the campsite. We made plenty of new friends.

Such an event doesn’t happen without hard work and determination from our adult volunteers. Several of our parents helped ensure our Beavers and Cubs were in the right place at the right time. Our Assistant Group Scout Leader and Group Scout Leader, Ashley and Ben, were also part of the Camp Core Team – putting the event together from start to finish.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
