2013 – Spring Camp – Ohiyo Cuboree – Robin Hood Camp

Troubled times are plaguing the various lands of England. With King Richard off to the Crusades, the Kingdom is suffering under the rule of Prince John. The Prince sees fit to over tax the citizens and his collector and enforcer, The Sheriff, takes pleasure
in torturing the poor folks of the land and taking away their possessions.

One man gathered a band of mercenaries to help and give back to the people. Robin, The Hood, uses his cunning and skill-at-arms to relieve bishops and nobles, of their gold and jewels to help the oppressed peasants.

The land of Tamaracouta, is now feeling the wrath of the Prince, and Robin Hood needs the help of many villagers to put an end to his tyranny. Join Little John, Friar Tuck, Maid Marion and Robin Hood in this epic adventure camp this spring. Catapults, canoe barges,
cooking on fires and of course archery are some of the many things awaiting these Merry Cubs.

Spring Camp Packing List:

Please note it’s preferable to pack in proper back packs so the Cubs can carry all their clothing and equipment and back packs require less space in the tents than large hockey bags. We understand that not everyone has an appropriate sized back pack or is going to run out and buy one and that’s OK. We do want the Cubs to be involved in packing and pack effectively so they can carry and be responsible for all their personal items.
