Cubs at Group Camp

15 October 2019

Akela and Baloo went out to Northern Heights on Saturday to confirm details for next weekend’s camp and can confirm that you will have some very exciting activities: orienteering, grass slope sledging, zip lining and more.

We are expecting you to arrive at 7:00 pm on Friday evening, 18th October.

The address for the site is Northern Heights, Edgwarebury Lane, Elstree, WD6 3RG. Follow the signs for Northern Heights off Edwarebury Lane, which involve turning left before the white house with the ornate black metal fence.

The track down to the site is single lane with few passing places and some quite severe speed humps. Please negotiate this slowly and share lifts where possible to reduce the number of vehicles because another pack is dropping off at the same time. We have been asked by the site warden to arrange for Cubs to be dropped off with our Leaders in the car park so that the adults delivering them can leave immediately making space for following vehicles. This means that Cubs will need to be able to carry their own kit up to Fieldside, our home for the weekend. A few wheelbarrows will be available to help with this.

Depending on the time that the other pack is leaving on Sunday we may need to make a similar arrangement when leaving the site. i.e. we will help the Cubs to bring their kit to the car park for collection. Please let us know in advance if you are going home with someone else’s parent.

Click here for a copy of the camp kit list. The ground is very wet at the site so wellington boots and indoor shoes/slippers will be required. Please pack the indoor shoes/slippers at the top of the kit bags so that you can put them on in the boot room on arrival.

Cubs do not require any pocket money.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask one of the leaders.

Kind regards

Akela
