Tents and Kit Bags

1 May 2014

This Thursday at Cubs, Akela took the Cub Pack through Tents and Kit Bags in preparation for the upcoming Star Wars Camp at the weekend. I think this was perfect Cubs activities embodying the Scout ethos… Everyday Adventure!

After talking about rucksacks and what to put put in them for camps, Akela taught the Cubs the “Kit Bag” game. In this game, the Cubs were split into their Sixes, each six given a dice which each Cub in that Six took it in turn to roll.

The Rules of the game

They had to get a Six to start and upon doing so the Cub who rolled the six had to run across the room to get a kit bag. After this they could roll any other number to get other items for their kit bag. Once they had an item they didn’t anything else if they rolled that number again – except numbers 1 and 2 which they had to roll multiple times to get each piece.

The Objective

To be the team to get ALL the items for their kit bag first… Simples…!

Number Kit to get
6 Kit Bag – gotta start with this!
5 sleeping bag
4 bed roll
3 kettle
2 Plate / Cup
1 Knife / Fork / Spoon

As you can hopefully tell from the video below, the Cubs had a great time playing this game 🙂

 After this game, Akela went on to talk with the Cubs about things you might pack for a days hike – such as a storm shelter like the one shown below that the Cubs enjoyed trying out!
