14 Scouts attended the Hells Fire Camp at Phasels Wood on the 28-30 April and took part in air rifle, climbing and zip wire activities.
On the way home on Sunday, they visited the Hells Fire Caves in High Wycombe www.hellfirecaves.co.uk, very dark, damp and chalky.
We received a couple of messages from parents
- “thank you for taking them, he certainly enjoyed himself”
- “thanks for camp he had a great time”
A big thankyou goes out to two parents who attended and supported this camp Jonathan and David, without whom the camp would not have been the success it was, especially when we lost a Leader due to illness.
Here’s to the next camp

The sun was shining on the Remembrance weekend where over 15 Cubs from 2nd Bracknell took part in the Remembrance parade on Sunday 13th November in Bracknell Town Center. There were lots of people there to watch including many parents.
The Cubs were well turned out and paraded well to and from the memorial.
Once again, we were fortunate with the sunshine at the weekend where over 20 Beavers from 2nd Bracknell took part in the Remembrance parade on Sunday 13th November in Bracknell Town Centre.
The Beavers all did themselves and 2nd Bracknell proud in their attitude and behaviour.
Well done Beavers
From a BBC article on 10th November 2016, looks like young people get a lot more than just fun out of Scouting…
Scouts and guides provide ‘mental health boost for life’
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.
