18 Cubs, 2 Cub Leaders and our Group Leader attended the Region Cuboree in Morisset on the weekend of 14-16 September. This was our major event for 2018 and all the Cubs were looking forward to a fun time. There were 750 Cubs, Leaders, Parent helpers, Scout helpers and Venturer helpers that attended from the Hunter & Coastal region.
The theme was CIRCUS! Over the two nights and two days, our Cubs got to do an amazing amount of activities. These included: the flying fox, climbing wall, hamster wheels, rope bridge, bump balls, slip’n’slide, obstacle course, sponge war, slippery pole and the dunking machine,
They made balloon animals, juggling balls, colour wheel spinners, painted pet rocks, played giant quoits and arcade games like clowns, shooting gallery and the basketball shootout. Then there was the popular photobooth, iced biscuits and face painting. One night we even had Gang Show perform for us.
Back in camp there were opportunities to socialise with Cubs and Leaders from other groups. All of Gosford District camped together – a total of 120 Cubs and Leaders. Imagine cooking for that many people! We had a great team of cooks made up of leaders and parent helpers who were kept busy feeding us, even trolleying our morning and afternoon teas to the bases we were on.
Region Cuboree was really successful and everyone had a great time. The Cubs were very tired at the end of it – one was so tired she couldn’t even tell her parents about it until the next day! Our next major event will be State Cuboree which is being held at Cataract Scout Camp in January 2019. We can’t wait!
