Cubs Night Away
420 nights away. 10,000 hours of adventure. We've provided a huge amount of fun, challenge adventure on nights away for our young people but we're not stopping there. Our group executive are going even further to stabilise (and even reduce) the cost of nights away for young people.

Adventure is at the heart of what we do, and our group executive recently agreed to fund our own minibus on any night away for any section in the group. This means more money will be available to ensure every young person will experience even more archery, kayaking and zorbing (to name a few). With over 420 nights away so far this year across the group, that'll mean we can get more young people experiencing fun, challenge and adventure by going on a night away.

Some nights away which will see the benefit include:
  • Beaver Sleepover @ Hawkhirst (Summer 2016)
  • Cub Polar Express Sleepover (Winter 2016)
  • Scout Over 12s Camp (Spring 2016)
  • Scout and Explorer Summer Camp (Summer 2016)
  • Scout expedition weekend (Summer 2016)
  • Explorers practice DofE expedition weekend (Summer 2016)
