Six Cub Scouts from Grey & Purple Packs who had recently been promoted to the role of Sixer spent an enjoyable 24-hours learning more about their responsibilities while at the same time completing the requirements for their Camper Activity Badge.

The Friday evening was spent pitching their tents in very wet conditions and then when the rain had lessoned eating burgers around the camp fire.  This was followed by a general discussion about what it means to be a Sixer before retiring to bed.

The camp fire was the location again the following morning for a breakfast of sausage and beans and washing up in the open air.

Tidying their tents proved to be their biggest challenge before tent inspection.  The one girl showing the boys how it should be done!

Time was then spent discussing the Grand Howl and learning how to fold the Union Flag for flag-break followed by a session on games and how to choose games that would suit everyone no matter what their preferences or abilities were.

A conversation on how to support Akela and the other Leaders followed pizza and pancakes for lunch.

The Cubs assisted with packing away the tents before finishing the training programme with a review of what they had learnt and consideration on how they would like to run their meetings in the future.

Sixer and Camper badges were awarded in the closing ceremony.  All of which were well deserved.
