Once a year, Western Cape runs a camp for 10 year old cubs in their final year before going up to scouts. The camp theme is based on the “Survivor” reality show and it takes place at the Hawequas scout campsite. In March this year 72 cubs took part, with ten cubs from 1st Claremont there, and Akela (Ian), Baloo (Fraser) and Mang (Elton) helping on camp staff this year. Camp Chief “Kepala” (Simon Grantham) is a former 1st Claremont scout.
For many cubs this was their last “normal” activity before national Covid 19 restrictions, which were declared only hours after the camp finished.
