Recently, I, along with 7 Cubs and 4 other leaders, had the pleasure of
attending the first ever Cuboree in Victoria. Cuborees are basicly state
Cub Camps for Cubs (WA calls them Cubilees?). This was Victoria's first one.
Form many of the party that went, this was their second cuboree, having
attended the3rd SA Cuboree back in November last year.
The idea of the Cuborees is get Cubs from all over the state (and sometimes
interstate as well) togeather, under cnavas (in tents) for a fun filled few
days. They vary from 2 to 4 days in length.
The Victorian one ran for 4 days and everyone who attended had a good time.
The entertaiment wa excelent (the theme for the camp was -it's time for
tommorow, today-)and we went to many differnt time zones and activity
bases. The activity bases ran for 2 hour blocks and at each one, there was
plenty of activities to keep the Cubs on the go for two hours. Some of the
bases were "Antartic", The Amazon, Cape Canaveral, Cario City, Brownsea
Island (this was pouplar with the leaders...) Oats Coast, lake Peddler, and
Routarou to name a few. We visited all 9 activity bases and the Cubs had
plenty of fun.
We camped in groups of 6 or 7 Cubs to one leader. Meals were eaten on a Sub
Camp basis and there was great interation between all Cubs.
This was certainly a highlight for all Cubs who attended and one that many
are looking forward to repating at some stage in the future.
