Pack meeting – end of term

We’ll end the Summer Term in our traditional way with an evening at Nowhurst camp site. We hope that other family members and friends of the pack will come along to join us at the camp fire.

When: Our pack meeting will take place on Tuesday 21 July. We’ll start at 6.30pm as usual but end at 8.30pm.

Where: We will be using  the Spider Site at Nowhurst Camp Site near Broadbridge Heath.

Directions: You will need to make your own way to and from the site. You may like to follow our directions. Once you turn onto Nowhurst Lane you will find that access is via a narrow road (see site map). Please be considerate to other road users including parents that may be leaving the site as you arrive.  The local residents have asked camp users to keep to 10mph on Nowhurst Lane. The site entrance is signed and is the second turn on the left – it is always tempting to go up the first road but please resist! A one way system operates through the camp site. Please enter by the first entrance and then leave the car park by the exit. We are using the Spider site but you will need to leave your car in the central car park and walk to the site.

What: We’ll start the evening by collecting firewood and then the leaders will build the fire while we have a wide game. We’ll then invest our new Cubs before we end the evening with a camp fire.

Who: We hope to see all our Cubs but also extend an invitation to other family members and friends of our pack. We’re also pleased to be joined by Phoenix who will be leading the camp fire and Marian who will be there to answer any questions you may have about Summer Camp food.

Cost: There is no charge for attending this event

Bring: You must arrive at camp in your uniform top and scarf. Bring a folding chair to use at the camp fire. As usual please bring a named water bottle to keep you hydrated during the evening. Check the weather forecast before you come in case other clothing is required, e.g. waterproof top. Those who have still to pay this terms Subs are gently reminded to bring their chequebooks and it is also the deadline for Summer Camp health forms to be submitted online.

Insects: The Spider site has a pond nearby and the insects can be rather hungry. We had some rather spectacular bites at our last camp so suggest that you wear long trousers even if the weather is warm. If you are targetted by such creatures we suggest using some insect repellant before you come.

Previous visits: Have a look at the pictures from this event last year for an idea of what we will get up to.
