Western Cape Region ran an Outdoorsman Badge course for cubs at Hawequas. The Outdoorsman Badge is one of the badges for ten year old cubs, and the course usually takes the form of a 2-night “Survivor” theme camp, but this year it was reduced to a one day activity due to Covid. As usual 1st Claremont was well represented with 3 cubs, 4 adult leaders, and a scout helper.
The course included axe skills, making a fire, cooking lunch, and building a shelter (a very useful skill because it rained for at least half of the day!) Despite the rain, Elton managed to teach Cubs how to use a shadow stick to determine North using the sun.
