3HH Cub Summer Solstice 2024 Skills Camp

Date: 1st Jul 2024 Author: Matt Rogers

On June 22nd, the 6ers and 2nders celebrated the longest day of the year with a Solstice themed skills camp.

Blessed with the weather we were delighted to welcome an amazing local skateboard instructor who put the Cubs through their paces. Although there was a lot of information to process, all the Cubs made astonishing progress and were soon all skating independently and even performing tricks embracing the summer vibe.

With a hearty appetite, the Cubs then set about cooking their own dinner over fires, making a delicious pasta sauce from scratch!! We believe we have mastered the “campfire doughnut” recipe and cannot recommend these enough!! A delightful campfire ended the day and all Cubs and leaders enjoyed a well deserved rest.

We rose early to a Sun Salutation yoga practice on our green, which set us up nicely for the day. More cooking on fires followed and various Solstice themed crafts were enjoyed by all, the Sun Catchers proving particularly popular. Summer is officially here..
