County Cub Camp

More than 400 Cubs aged nine and a half to ten and a half took part in the 20th annual County Cub Camp  in June.


With full weekend of fun, both on site and off site, the Cubs, most of whom will now be preparing to move up to the Scout section, would have left with great memories.


Next year 2016, celebrates 100 years of Cub Scout, and Cubs will be celebrating throughout the country. With plans already underway, and with the success of the County Scout Camp earlier this year, the next County Cub Camp will be held at Mallory Park, but with a difference.


There will be no age restrictions for Cubs to attend in 2016.

Scout Aviation Day 2015

image 5Aeroplanes, gliders and hovercrafts; it is easy to see why so many scouts and their families (from the South Leicestershire District and beyond), descended on Husbands Bosworth Airfield, home of 1st Kilworth Air Scouts, in June for The Youth Aviation day.

A truly inspiring day had been organised for young people from across so many different walks of life: from Cadets to Scouts to an array of members from various disability organisations, every young person was able to find something to interest and entice them in the glorious summer’s sun.

                                                                                     One of the very popular activities image 2was   undoubtedly the chance tosit in a hovercraft that was taken around a track. It was a thrilling opportunity and many Cubs, Scouts and Leaders all had a brilliant time (many exclaiming that they would love to go again!).

An opportunity to get up close to some very impressive model helicopters enthralled this group of cubs and scouts, one of whom exclaimed, “Look at all the detail in this! It’s so cool!”

Getting the opportunity to sit in Land Rovers was incredible for Scouts and Leaders alike who got to see first-hand what these military vehicles looked like up close and were able to have a go at sitting in the swinging seat that was suspended from the roof bars.

Young people were also given the opportunity to sit inside some of the aircraft and explore the control panels which they all thoroughly enjoyed.

Additionally, throughout the day there were many displays and flyovers by a whole assortment of aeroplanes, helicopters and gliders adding a little something special to the day. Many of these magnificent air displays earned gasps of admiration and wonder from the enchanted crowd.image 4

The day was an absolute success, all who attended had a wonderful time and were fascinated by the outstanding displays and activities put on by Youth Aviation.
