Winter Camp Feb 2017

3rd S.W.C. Cubs Winter Camp 2017


On Friday 24th February 2017, our Pack left the hut for winter camp at Linnet Clough Scout campsite in the lower Peak District, We stayed in the Mellor Lodge Camping hut which was located just off site. After a late evening arrival and a short game the cubs did a short mapping exercise after settling there kits into the bunk room.

After Breakfast on the Saturday morning we set out on a 3 hour hike through Mellor and over the moor upto the triangulation point at Shaw Cairn where we invested a cub. After dinner we hiked down passed Mellors Cross to the main Campsite. The cubs were split into 2 groups one did an hour of archery the other did an hour of team challenges. Then they swapped over. Next was tuck shop and a wander down the hill to the Lodge for Dinner followed by a film.

After a slow start on Sunday we went back upto the campsite for a few hours of bouldering and the indoor cave maze activity. Our final activity of camp was an orienteering exercise around the site.


Much fun was had by all and many happy memories were gained
