Group Camp – Wow!

Over 70 people participated in Kama’s Group Camp at Wee Jasper on the last weekend of October.  It was our first Group Camp in 18 months, and it was well worth the wait.  The weather was great on Saturday, and didn’t do much harm on Sunday, so we are thankful.  We had such fun with abseiling, caving, archery and a morning of activity bases.  We were amply fed, with the highlight being a full roast dinner and apple-rhubarb crumble for dessert, followed by skits around the campfire on Saturday night.  Here are some photos.  I don’t have many photos of Cubs in action, so please feel welcome to email a few to me, and I will add them to this post.

Thank you to everyone – for attending, for being fun company, for helping wherever it was needed, and for making our camp the wonderful weekend that it was.

the-awesome-aa-teams_-archery-rock-friendsWe can’t acknowledge the members of the Rock and Archery teams enough for their patience, skill, knowledge and good humour.  We had a ball.  Thank you for being at our camp.

three-birthdays-at-campWe celebrated no less than three birthdays at camp.  Happy birthday Declan, Roberta and Ava, and thanks for giving us an excuse to have cake for breakfast!

If you have any photos of Cubs abseiling, or anything from Sunday morning’s round robin of activity bases, please email them to Group Leader,
