Over 100 Cub Scouts from across Milton Keynes experienced the true life of Vikings over the weekend

100 + Cubs participated in activities from firelighting, to forming battle formations with the Vikings.

Mary, Cub Scout, said her favourite activity was “Making the medieval teddy bears”, and Jack, Cub Scout, mentioned that his best part was the “Axe throwing”.

Claire Harris, Assistant District Commissioner (Cubs), thanked all of the Leaders, Young Leaders, and Vikings for working so hard to give the Cubs a fantastic weekend; “We really are one big team in MK Scouting and this weekend saw everyone working together to ensure our fantastic cubs had a weekend filled with fun, laughter and doing lots of activities. Our cubs will have made some wonderful memories.”

The Vikings, from Historical Re-enactment society, Cestrefeld, part of the wider group Regia An, came along to give the Cubs from MK a true experience of Viking life.
