Cub Scouts from the Corozal, Belize and Cayo districts participate in the 21st National Cub Scout Camp.
The camp was held from July 6-9, 2011 at Camp Oakley, Burrell Boom. Under the theme, One Promise-Cub Scouts do your Best, the program was designed to help the particuipants develop intellectually, understanding the importance of keeping and practicing their promise and law while developing their skills to better communicate and interact with others, with nature and the community.
Proud to raise our flags
The fun and interesting activities met their physical, emotional and social needs as they participated in round robin games, arts and craft, singing, nature walks and hiking to BUrrell Boom where they were told stories on the history and growth of the Boom community. Throughout the camp, the Packs or sixes developed friendships and entertained each others with skits, songs and jokes at the Red Flower on their last night. The exciting moments were to roast marshmallows and sausages.
Knots tying - learn by doing
Nature itself challenged the activities and sleeping commodities of the camp and unfortunately, the heavy downfall of rain cancelled their field trip. Nonetheless, the Cub Scouts embraced the rain. Their favorite activities entailed getting prepared for Carnival in face mask and body paint. As the parade ended, they were surprised with some water-balloon toss, much to their delight.
Excercise - first thing in the morning
Camp director, Ms. Yasmin Hulse, was supported by a team of Leaders and parents who assisted with preparing healthy balanced meals and coordinated the activities.
