Chandlers Ford District in Hampshire celebrated Cubs100 in style over the May Bank Holiday Weekend with a camp held at Butchers Coppice campsite in Bournemouth (technically in Dorset but was part of Hampshire during the past 100 years!). 

The campsite was chosen for its combination of open space and adventurous activities. Alongside more modern Scouting activities such as crate stacking and gladiator challenge, the Cubs also learnt about the Cub scouting journey over the past century with an excellent display of uniforms and other material from the Hampshire Heritage team. There was also a “Design your own Cubs100 t-shirt” activity base, as well as plenty of opportunities for Cubs to demonstrate and improve their teamwork skills.

The weekend’s events culminated in a Cubs100 camp photo taken from the top of the zip wire pole by Ed Vokes, Camp Leader and ADC for Cubs, who then delivered on the camp theme of challenging yourself by jumping off the tower and using modern technology (his phone) to film the cubs and their camp from the wire!
