The Cubs had perfect weather this week for building dens on the Heath. Putting their engineering skills to the test, they lugged logs, made roofs of ferns and worked in teams to create a shelter from the elements. Prizes were awarded to the winning team, but everyone had a great time!
Is there nothing our Scouts can't do on a typical Friday night?....
Low ropes course in the tie-dye T-shirts they made while taking part in a 24- hour Fasting Fundraiser for charities they chose themselves. They raised over £500 for their chosen causes.
Well done, Scouts!
Oxshott's Cubs enjoyed Mediterranean weather this weekend at Polyapes for the Annual Esher District Cub Camp. They took part in all the organised games and activities, had a massive sing-song/campfire and even enjoyed a medieval feast!
Our Cubs bravely hiked 4k cross country lugging heavy jugs to raise funds for global children who fetch water every day & to be in their shoes!
Thanks so much for all the help getting everyone round safely and motivated. It was great to see so many of the cubs turn out in the rain and they were all amazing, and seemed to really enjoy the challenge!
Hope you did too!
Well done to all sections from 1st Oxshott for looking smart at this year's St George's Day parade at Hinchley Wood. Check out the gallery for more photos.
1st Oxshott's Cubs outdid themselves this week. They celebrated the Chinese New Year by collaborating to create this awesome dragon. I think you'll agree that it's a job well done so they could celebrate in style! Check the Cubs section for more pix.
Over 200 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Adult Unit Helpers took part in this year's Cross Country Race. Running on a new, more challenging course, the competitors this year had the benefit of timing chips to ensure that the finish times were more accurate than ever. Thanks to Anja, Andrew, Jack, Julian, Richard, Nicola, Susan, Corrie from 1st Oxshott, and all the district leaders and helpers for making this event such a success for everyone.

The cubs have been very busy in recent weeks. They've visited a synagogue and learned about the Jewish faith. And they had a go at using sharp tools (!) in making things.
Our Beaver Colony had a very festive meeting for our last of 2016. We would like to thank all the parents, helpers and friends who give us their time and energy to make this group so successful and virbrant.
Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes for a prosperous and happy New Year!
We've had a busy week here at 1st Oxshott.
