The youngsters tackled varying challenging bases with a mixture of intrepidation and determination to succeed. The bases included a rope course, tree climb, innovative games, archery and zip wire.

Activities were organised by an enthusiastic and patient team of Barcaple instructors.

The cub scouts and leaders would like to thank all the staff for another superb day and to Drew Low, the District Chairman, who kindly came along to support the youngsters.
