Yes, a HUGE well done to everyone who attended the sponsored walk on Saturday for Bryson's Animal Refuge!

Cubs completed the BP walk (about 6 miles) whilst wearing their animal masks they had made a few weeks earlier. Everyone was dressed up- even the leaders!

Cubs started the day bright and early, were bussed to Fourstones (thanks to Sarah Irvine from Oxclose School), and put on their animal masks. They then set off, walked around 3 miles to the Cairn, which marks where the First Official Scout Camp was held in 1908 by Baden Powell, following the same route BP had taken. They had lunch and walked back down (still wearing their animal masks)

Many people believe Brownsea Island was the first scout camp but it was only an experimental camp. The first Official camp, with invested scouts, was held in Northumberland (Where the Cubs Visited)

Many Thanks to our two guides, everyone had a great day out.

See all the photos on the Photos Zone and keep an eye out for some final sponsor figures! And another Well Done!
