Last weekend Cubs from St Andrew's and Oxclose joined 600 other Cubs and Leaders from across Durham County for Cubboree Space Camp. Cubboree is the highlight of Cubs programme and it's easy to see why with over 50 activities and a huge party.

Cubs arrived on Friday night, hugely excited and enthusiastic about the weekend to come and the opening party did not disappoint. Baloo's Bash was huge with music, games, and loads of fun.

Saturday was spent exploring the campsite as the activities opened. Cubs spent the day trying activities such as climbing, abseiling, mountain boarding, grass sledging and orienteering. Many Cubs visited area HLS where they were challenged to perform an alien autopsy and to design their own flying saucers and alien masks. Around the site there were also many science experiements to get involved in like growing crystals and collecting moon rock Cubs who collected a stamp at each activity gained their science badge.

On Sunday, our budding Olympians had the chance to earn their athlete's badge by taking part in events all around Moor House and grass sledging and dino karts reopened for some peddle powered fun. Some familiar faces led a Zumba class in the big tent which was not to be missed.

Our Cubs and Leaders had a fantastic weekend (despite a sleepless night calming excited Cubs down) and we're all looking forward to our next big adventure!
