Skills Camp was the 26th -28th April and this is the annual camp where they get to put their skills they’ve learned over the past year and put them to the test.
Army Camp was 17th - 19th May at Moorhouse Durham with another 180 cubs from Newcastle. On Friday once all of the 49th cubs arrived we went down to get the campsite ready.
In the last weekend of February the cubs attended a district camp to Hawkhirst, Kielder. This camp was district so our cubs had the chance to meet new people and make new friends from the groups across Newcastle.
In February some of our Sixers and Seconders, along with senior Cubs from 18th Newcastle, braved the cold wintry weather and attended "Chilly Monkeys Camp"
Our team representing the 49th Newcastle Cubs came first place in the annual District Cub Quiz, with an impressive score of 48 out of 50. Great teamwork - well done for making the Pack proud!
We went on a hike around Blanchland and had a fantastic time! It was a more challenging hike more off the beaten path than a lot which we do. It was across the moorland which is gorgeous and the weather was fab!
The Cubs met at Newcastle Central and took the train to Wylam, walking along to Prudhoe and stopping to visit the castle and then walked back to Wylam to catch the train back to Newcastle.
Cubs went on an Army Training Camp learning lots about teamwork, communication, first aid, navigation and physical fitness - with a helping hand from Staff Sgt Barrett from 216 Transport Squadron!
