CUBS NARROW BOATING CAMP 2016
On the weekend of Friday 30th Sept through to Sunday 2nd October saw 35 Cubs in total on the waters of the Grand Union canal.
The Cubs were split up into 2 groups, the first group getting to the Narrow boats moored at Hillingdons Narrow boat Associations HQ on the Friday evening, sleeping over on the boat ready for a days boating on the Saturday up the canal, returning around 4pm. The second group doing the same on the Saturday evening for their boating experience on the Sunday.
All Cubs had a go at sleeping! (not all were that good at this I have to say), steering (under the watchful eyes of our skippers Steve and David), feeding the ducks and swans on-route, and operating the many locks we had to go through.
I am pleased to say that NO Cubs got wet from the canal over the whole weekend (though we did have a small amount of rain on the Saturday trip) the Sunday group had glorious sunshine all day.
Going on how vocal all the Cubs were over the whole weekend they all had a fantastic time, and thanks must go out to all the Cub leaders, Lesley, David and Steve for lasting the whole weekend.
