Our Virtual Cub camp takes place this weekend 27th / 28th March and we are excited to share our plans so far. We will add to this page as we go along and on the day will share another page for all our Presentations , Instructions , Activity information , pictures and lots of fun !
Important – Please take pictures/videos throughout the day at all stages – we generally camp together and everyone knows what everyone else is up to :)- we will share with the rest of the group (password protected) Also consider that we would like to share some pictures on the website publicly when we are done. (consent will be sought before publishing).
Please also ensure Cubs wear Neckerchiefs at all times when on “Camp”.
A big part of our normal process is “Plan” , “Do” , “Review”. This helps Cubs to discuss , prepare and get everything they need for Camp.
- Plan– Plan their shopping list and the equipment they will need . Take a look at the Food and decide on things they will need .
- Do – Prepare and Cook the meals including awareness of hygiene before , after and during – and tidy up afterwards.
- Review – We get together and talk about how everything went , good points , bad points and what we might do better for next time.
We would like Cubs to cook some food that has a french theme. We have some suggestions below , but we would love Cubs to come up with their own ideas also !

Building & Striking Camp
We suggested the cubs find somewhere different to sleep at home ( other than their bed ! ) . This could be a tent outdoors, a den indoors, on the floor next to their bed. We leave it up to you and your imagination.
Please email photos of camp ( in progress/completed ) – cu*****@26********.ie or add to WhatsApp group before 18:00 hrs.
Please keep an eye on weather forecasts for this weekend , and have a backup plan , just in case !
Camping In !

Striking Camp – this means “taking down” your camp site , and as always ours Cubs need to ensure that they “Leave No Trace”.

We would like Cubs to record the distance walked by themselves & Family – Please Message us with the result in Kilometres before 18:00 hrs.
