We then set off trying to get to as many locations as we could and for Cubs to get their photo taken at those places. We met some very friendly Policemen outside the Scottish Parliament who spoke to the children and let them have a look at their handcuffs. My group were determined that we would get to The Royal Yacht Britannia, which we did!
Back to camp for a nice warm dinner and an indoor campfire as the Cubs had been cold and wet enough for one day. Well done to our Leaders and Young Leaders who ran our singing for us. It is always good to have lots of volunteers.
On Sunday morning we took the Cubs to the swimming pool at Wester Hailes where the staff were really accommodating. Cubs took part in staged swimming badges with a number of leaders on the side checking off each stage. The remaining leaders stayed in the pool, just in case, but all went well and 50 Cubs achieved a swimming badge! We split the Cubs into 2 groups and the other half went to Ratho climbing wall where all the Cubs had the opportunity to take part in climbing.
Thank you, Bonaly, for a great weekend, we will definitely be back again soon.
