County Cub Camp – May 2019

Between: 24th May 2019 - 26th May 2019 Location: Hesley Wood Scout Activity Centre, White Lane, Chapeltown S35 2YH


In case you have missed your previous communication regarding the first (in many years) Central Yorkshire County Cub Camp…

The whole of Hesley Wood Scout Camp is booked and exclusive to us for the weekend,  activities are booked and the remainder of the planning is well under way!

We’re super excited to announce that our triennial County Cub Camp will be called Cubadoodledoo! In true Youth Shaped spirit, Charlotte, a Cub from Seacroft entered this name to the competition run by our Youth Team and won!

It really couldn’t be simpler for packs to attend: simply bring Cubs, Tents and Leaders and we’ll supply food for the weekend, entertainment and activities!

To date, activities include: shooting, archery, axe throwing, climbing, zip wire, crate stacking, water activities, go carts, various inflatables, crazy golf, Lego and many more!

Any problems regarding a leader with a Nights Away Permit, please contact me direct – we will endeavour to make sure any cub or pack who wants to come, can come, where we can!

If you have any queries or issues please just drop me an email.

Don’t forget to express your interest in attending using the attached form as soon as possible. We will send future full booking, health and shooting forms and all other details to those who have expressed their interest.

Final bookings will be required by 12 April 2019.
