1st Bougival are a British Scouts Overseas Cub Pack from the France & Iberia District, who meet just outside Paris.

In May they joined forces with friends and neighbours at 1st Maisons-Laffitte at the French Scouts and Guides HQ  at Jambville for a two night Cubs100 camp. Altogether 60 Cubs, as well as Beavers and Scouts from 1st ML took part.

As well as all the usual Camp activities like backwoods cooking, campfire songs, knife skills and shelter buildings (eight of their bravest Cubs spent a whole night in their shelters built with the help of one of our parents - an ex Royal Marine), they held a Cubs100 birthday party and completed a proficiency badge from the original Cub programme in 1916. Akela from 1st ML hand painted a replica badge which takes pride of place on all their Cubs’ blankets.

They also planted a beech tree in the grounds of Jambville to commemorate the event.
