During the holidays there was a wonderful event called the Cuboree. Many cubs knew about this event as it was the biggest cub event of the year. It was so big because it lasted for 4 whole nights and there were over 900 cubs from all over Australia and also many leaders and venturer helpers to look after us and run the activities.
In the middle of 2010 we filled out an application for me and my sister Skye to go on the Cuboree in January 2011. I expected it to be fun, interesting and a time to make new friends. When the day finally arrived to get ready we had to pack all our kit and drop the bags off at the cub house, because it was going to be a long walk from the car park to our tent. Our leaders took them all to the camp site for us, the day before. After dinner, on Friday 14th January my mum dropped us off at Camp Cottermouth. (It really was a long walk from the car park to our tents). My mum told me there was going to be lots of people there, but I didn’t expect the crowds that were pulling up in their cars. On the walk to our area, we passed hundreds of other cubs who had come to have some fun. It was a tent city.
