The weather on the last night of camping with the Cubs was so warm that we decided to let them sleep under the stars with the sides of their tents tolled up.
This evening, the camp site is much quieter place as we said goodbye to the Cubs at lunch time. The Scouts are staying on for an extra day for a final camp fire, break down the camp and a last visit to the camp tuck shop.1
The wall of Irn Bru (aka Leaders Fuel) tins in the kitchen was completed …

The Cubs joined forces with the scouts to build fires and cook pizzas on the embers. In the afternoon the Cubs earned more crystals with archery and wooden badge making. This was followed by joint campfire with many Cubs and Scouts contributing a verse or two of the songs.

Today the Cubs arrived. Unfortunately no-one has taken any pictures today due to the weather.
The Scouts have been a bit of a busier day learning knife skills this morning and setting up their kitchen in the afternoon.
This evening as the weather improved, we played a wide game which involved the Cubs and Scouts chasing the Young Leaders.

Hopefully the weather will improve tomorrow and we will feel like taking photos.

The scouts have been working hard all afternoon getting there own camp site set up and also setting up the tents for the Cubs who will be arriving tomorrow. Despite the rain we had in Liss last night, none fell here so the ground is rock hard.

All the Beavers too part in our #skillsforlife activities this morning provided a the skills require a good knowledge of marshmallow burning.
This afternoon the Beavers did a 4 mile walk to Welbedding Common which was a real challenge as they had to walk 4 miles in quite hot conditions.
This evening we have been chilling out with a double 99 for desert followed by a camp fire. Most Beavers were happy when we let them go to bed at 10.30.
