Cubs on Brownsea Island

Thursday Cubs recently took a camp on Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour, the home of scouting and had an unforgettable experience.

Saturday morning involved kayaking and raft building off the south coast of the island. The afternoon was filled by a mixture of archery and and a low ropes confidence course.

We cooked all our meals in the open air, on gas stoves, with full english breakfasts each morning, sandwiches for lunch and a choice of pasta bolognese or chilli and rice.

Sunday morning we investigated the history and heritage of the island, finding out about the first scout camp and how scouting has changed and evolved since these humble beginnings. Baden Powell’s games were a big hit and we re-enacted some of these games that took place over 100 years ago, before heading back to the ferry on our way home.

Celebration for Ted Hughes

At our open day on 7th May we took the opportunity to celebrate Ted Hughes being a member of the Charlton Kings Scout group for 75 years since becoming a scout as an evacuee in 1941. He has since been a senior scout, leader and committee member and still finds the time to help the marquee team around running archery sessions each week.
