The adventure started at Oaks in Charnwood campsite and followed footpaths through the woodland and across the fields, taking in the news of the scenic Leicestershire countryside. Along the hike the Cubs had to find different items relating to each letter of the alphabet - we are still out trying to find that Zebra. It was chilly and muddy but all the Cubs were laughing and smiling the whole way round.
However the fun didn't stop there! Once back at the campsite there were more activities to do.
We had crossbow shooting with the Cubs, and some of the Leaders, shooting rubber darts at the targets to score as many points as possible. We will give you an update soon as to which group got the most points.
The hardest challenge by far was the egg carry. Each pack had to design and make, using string and pea canes, carriers to take their egg over the assault course on the campsite. We had some interesting designs but sadly there was eggsplosions all over the course as all the eggs fell out and smashed... oops... but they all still had an eggsellent time running over the assault course.
The final activity of the day was to use the Ghillie Kettles and make a cup of hot chocolate, definatly needed after a day full of adventure.
