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 last pack meeting this term will take place on Tuesday 24 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 users including parents that may be leaving the site as you arrive. 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 carry your gear to the site. Whichever way you come you will end up on the narrow lanes so please drive carefully.
What: We’ll start the evening by collecting firewood and then our helpers will build the fire while we have a wide game. We’ll then present some awards 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 (who must be accompanied by an adult who retains responsibility for them) and friends of our pack.
Cost: There is no charge for attending this event
Bring: You must arrive at camp in your uniform top (Cub t-shirt is fine) and scarf. Bring a folding chair to use at the camp fire. Check the weather forecast before you come in case other clothing is required, e.g. waterproof top. We’ll have some squash and biscuits later in the evening and hopefully some toasted marshmallows but please bring the usual water bottle in case you need a top up after running about in the woods.
Insect bites: The Spider site has a pond nearby and, as we found at our camp in June, the insects can be rather hungry. If you are targetted by such creatures we suggest using some insect repellent before you come.
