The eager Cubs set off on their overnight camp to Zara Resort at Khandala on December 1, 2017. The new recruits looked nervous but were excited to go on their first camp. We arrived at Zara’s at 11am and the boys were allotted their rooms and made a quick dash for a dip in the swimming pool. After a scrumptious lunch, Team Adventure took the boys along with their scouters to visit the Maganlal Chikki factory and thereafter to Monkey Point. On returning back instructions for the evening and night were given. Cubs enjoyed the Dance session to foot tapping DJ music before dinner. The Red Flower activity which is associated with the Cub Movement was conducted after dinner. Each Six put in their best effort to ensure that their skits presented a social message to all.
The boys woke up to a windy morning the next day but none had any inhibitions about the morning Trek which was followed by breakfast. The scouters conducted an inspection of the camp requirements and cub equipment of every cub. Post the inspection the boys of each pack attended a session on basic First Aid by a member of Team Adventure while the others played games conducted by the scouters. The Cubs arrived at school at 4 pm after a good lunch with happy memories and experiences.
