We went on a Bear Hunt

26 March 2015

bearHuntTonight, continuing the Year of Adventure, the Cubs wrapped up warm and set went on Bear Hunt! Some were looking for Bear Grylls (we didn’t see him 🙁 ) and others (including me!) were looking for real Bears… thankfully we didn’t see any of those either!

Ok so in reality we were going on an evening hike, but calling it a Bear Hunt gives it that edge I thought… !

One of our new Cub Leaders, Shen (she also helps out in Beavers – awesome!), did a recce earlier in the week and put a route map together – starting at our HQ, hiking to the Unicorm Pub in Carlton Village and then back to our HQ again. In a cold wind, we did it in a little over an hour, getting back just before it was time for parents to come pick the Cubs back up again.

Each Cub had a picture sheet with a list of questions (See Documents attachments below) to take with them to add a bit more interest to the hike. There was a Bonus question at the end of this

How many steps did I take walking from church, to Carlton and back again?

A MASSIVE thanks to Shen for planning, organising and leading the hike! Also to the several parents and the other Cub Leaders that wrapped up and came along with us, and of course the Cubs who should have slept well after walking nearly 2.5miles…!
