                                         Camp Rules
There are not too many rules but they are there for the safety of both yourself
and all others on the camp site. They are also there to make camp as enjoyable
as possible for both you as Cubs and the Leaders and Helpers.

    1. When you hear “Pack Pack Pack” (or three blasts on the whistle) you must
        immediately go straight to the leader who called it. This means that you
        stop whatever you are doing and go.
    2. Litter is not acceptable around the campsite or in your tents. There are
        bins for litter and you must use them. You will be asked to do the
        occasional litter pick to ensure that the site is kept clean.
    3. There are boundaries to the campsite and you may not cross them. Unless
        you are with a leader you must keep out of the car park, activity area,
        pond area and other group camps.
    4. You must not go into any tent other than your own without being invited.
    5. The kitchen area is out of bounds unless you are asked to go in by a
        leader. This is to protect you from the hot food being prepared.
    6. There is to be NO climbing of trees or pulling at them.
    7. When you are out of your tent you must wear your shoes/trainers at all
        times.
    8. You must always have a t-shirt or top on between 10.30am and 4pm. This
        is so you don’t get sunburnt – which can still happen on cloudy days.
    9. Swearing or fighting are strictly not allowed. If you are caught doing either
        you will receive a warning. On the second occasion you will be sent home.
    10. You must not leave your tent before 7am (nor should you make any noise
        before then). You may of course go to the toilet block but only if you
        really cannot wait.
    11. You will be asked to prepare your tent for bed. This means lay out your
        sleeping bag with teddy, pyjamas, torch and washkit on top. It is
        important to do this because it will be much harder to do in the dark.
    12. You will be given a short time at bedtime to settle down. When you are
        told lights out it means that you must turn off your torch and go to sleep.
        Any torches shining after lights out will be confiscated for the night.
    13. At meal times behave at the table and do not make too much noise. Have
        a care for others sitting with you and do not forget to thank the people
        who cook and serve your food.
    14. Games equipment, e.g. football, is kept in the leaders’ tents or the store
        tent. You must ask if you want to use it – don’t just help yourself. When
        you have finished playing please return the equipment to the tent – don’t
        leave it laying about the site otherwise it may not be there when you want
        it next time.

Dr Livingstone
Livingstone was a curious combination of missionary, doctor, explorer, scientist and anti-slavery
activist. He spent 30 years in Africa, exploring almost a third of the continent, from its southern
tip almost to the equator. Livingstone received a gold medal from the London Royal Geographical
for being the first to cross the entire African Continent from west to east. In search of a means to
access the interior, Livingstone tagged the Zambezi "God's highway" to the Indian Ocean and set
off down the river, discovering the great cataract native Africans called Mosi-o-Tunya, "the smoke
that thunders." Livingstone christened the great waterfall Victoria Falls after his queen. Although
he never discovered the source of the Nile, one of his goals, he eliminated some possibilities and
thereby helped direct the efforts of others. In 1843, while visiting the Mabotsa valley, Livingstone
shot a lion. Before it died, however, the lion attacked Livingstone, costing him the use of his left
arm.
Livingstone's explorations resulted in a revision of all contemporary maps. He returned to Britain
in 1856 and was welcomed as a great explorer. In 1866, after commanding a series of
explorations, Livingstone led an expedition to discover the sources of the Nile River and explore
the watershed of central Africa. Little was heard from Livingstone during this period, and his
welfare became a matter of international concern. In 1870 Livingstone travelled from Ujiji, on
Lake Tanganyika, to the Lualaba River, in present-day Democratic Republic of the Congo
(formerly Zaire), becoming the first European to visit that location. Upon his return to Ujiji,
Livingstone was met by a rescue party led by Henry Morton Stanley, who is said to have greeted
the explorer with the famous remark, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" Stanley and Livingstone
explored the area north of Lake Tanganyika together. With Stanley's supplies Livingstone
continued his explorations, but he was weak, worn out and suffering from dysentery. Then, on
the morning of April 30, 1872, his two African assistants found him dead, still kneeling at his
bedside, apparently praying when he died. They dried his body and carried it and his papers on a
dangerous 11-month journey to Zanzibar, a trip of 1,000 miles. The natives buried his heart in

                                            Games
Captain Orange & the California
2 teams follow 2 different but equal length trails leading to the spy “Captain Orange”
who is waiting to be led to the yacht “California” which is cruising along a wooded track
“off-shore”. The team to reach Captain Orange first tries to get him safely to the
California. The other team have to try and stop them. Any of them caught by the
California will have their lives taken and have to drop out of the game. The team to get
Captain Orange to the California wins. Position of the California is given by a coded
message.
Paratroopers Game
Paratroopers and one leader to find factory from specified starting place, take, plan
escape, build and cross rope bridge, boil egg on fire and return to take off base. They
leave details of this base in code behind at the factory. Scientist takes this to the
defenders who try to intercept Paras and capture their plans (a box) before they reach
their take off base. Teams can reverse roles and play again.
Puddocks
2 teams. 2 poles at each end of pitch from upright wickets. 2 simultaneous bowlers.
Fielder returns ball to either bowler who immediately bowls underarm to opposite
wicket whether the batsman is ready or not. Batsman is out if the ball goes between the
stumps or hits them. Runs are taken by batsmen. If ball is caught with BOTH hands,
whole batting team is OUT. If after just one bounce the ball is caught with ONE hand
only just the batsman is out.
Kick Hide and Seek
Mark a goal one metre in diameter and place a football in it. One kicks it hard the others
run and hide. “It” runs to recover it and replaces the ball in the circle before going in
search of the players. When he sees one he must immediately call out “ I see…” and
both run for the ball. First cub there kicks it and runs and hides. Last cub is new “It”.
Whistle Hide and Seek
Leader goes off into prescribed area and hides in a bush or up a tree. After a while the
cubs set off to find him. Leader should blow whistle about once every 30 seconds. The
cub who finds him tries to get all his team quietly in with the leader before any other
teams. Leader should stay put in his hiding spot. He should try to make the game last no
more than about 15 minutes.
Rings Raid
Two or more bases. At each base two concentric areas marked out with string. Cubs at
each base divide into attackers and defenders. Attackers given a ring each. Try to throw
rind from outside outer area into inner area at other base. If touched by the a defender,
or if ring falls into outer area, the ring becomes property of that base. Attacker returns
to his base, swaps over with a defender who takes a ring out. Winners have least number
of rings in the inner area at the end of the time limit.
Espionage Game
Cards spelling a message are set out on trees in a defined area. Each Cub has a wool life.
Sixes have designated bases. First Six to get message wins. Cubs losing lives return to
leader for new piece of wool. Example message “All the animals in the wood should seek
shelter from an approaching swarm of bees”.

Morse Code is a binary code for the transmission of verbal messages, devised during the 1830s by Samuel Morse.
Each letter of the alphabet, numeral, and punctuation mark was assigned a distinctive combination of (short) dots
and (long) dashes. The most famous combination of which is probably the distress call,
SOS ..._ _ _....
An improved version, known as the International Morse Code, was devised at a European conference in 1851. Morse
has continued to be used in ship-to-shore communication and various other contexts, but modern telegraphy has
made greater use of the more economical Baudot code, devised in 1874 by French engineer Jean Maurice Emile
Baudot (1845-1903).
In 1988, the International Maritime Organization (the United Nations body on shipping safety) agreed to introduce
from 1993 the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, which uses satellite technology and dispenses with the
tapping out of signals by a radio operator.

Aint no flies on us
There aint no bugs on us,
There aint no bugs on us,
There may be bugs on some of you mugs,
But there aint no bugs on us.

There aint no flies on us,
There aint no flies on us,
There may be flies on some of you guys,
But there aint no flies on us.

Animal Fair
We went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk (THUMP!)
And slid down the elephant's trunk, (WHEEE!)
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees
And what became of the monkey monkey monkey…

One half of the singers keep chanting "Monkey monkey monkey" in rhythm while
the other half repeats the verse, then swap over; continue.

Be kind to your web footed friends
Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's mother
It lives all alone in a swamp
Where the weather is always damp.
You may think that this is the end
Well it is but to prove that I’m a liar
I’m going to sing it again
Only this time I’m going to sing it higher

Campfire’s burning
Campfires burning, campfires burning
Draw nearer, draw nearer
In the gloaming, in the gloaming
Come sing and be merry

Coca Cola came to town
Coca - Cola came to town,
Diet Pepsi shot him down,
Dr. Pepper picked him up,
Now they all drink Seven-Up.

(Chorus) Honk-honk, rattle-rattle, crash-crash, Beep-beep!

Romeo and Juliet,
On a balcony they met.
Romeo said to Juliet,
“You’re the cutest girl that I’ve seen yet.”

Superman flying through the air,
Floating around without a care,
Looking for his Lois Lane -
Is it a bird or is it a plane?

Jaws went swimming in the sea,
Saw a diver for his tea.
Chopped him up into little chunks,
Then spat out his swimming trunks.

In the cinema in the dark,
Watching Raiders of the Lost Ark.
By the girls he is adored:
Harrison Ford, yes Harrison Ford.

Birdy, birdy, in the sky
Dropped a present from on high.
Looks like chocolate, tastes it too,
Oh my gosh, it's birdy poo

Coffee
Coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee
Cheese & biscuits, cheese & biscuits, cheese & biscuits, cheese & biscuits
Treacle pudding, treacle pudding, treacle pudding,
Fish and chips, fish and chips, fish and chips,
Smoked salmon, smoked salmon, smoked salmon,
Soup!

Court of King Caractacus
This is one guaranteed to impress your audience if you can keep breathing right
the way through. It has just one line, which is introduced bit by bit through the
song and repeated 4 times per verse. The first verse is:
‘The ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus were just passing by’
repeated 4 times.
This bit is then added to every time around as follows, and the whole thing
repeated 4 times per verse. That is why you need lots of breath especially for
the last verse.
        The faces of………..
        The noses on the faces of …..
        The boys who put the powder on ……
        The fascinating witches who put the scintillating stitches in the britches
         of…..
The last verse, which is not repeated,is:
Now if you want to take some pictures of the fascinating witches who put the
scintillating stitches in the britches of the boys who put the powder on the noses
of the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus…then
you’re too late, cos they just…passed…bye!

Grand old Duke of York
Oh, the Grand Ole Duke Of York,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.
And when they were up they were up
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up,
they were neither up nor down.

Actions: Stand up for the word up, sit down for the word down

Head, shoulders, knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.
And eyes and ears, and mouth and a nose.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Touch the appropriate body part each time it’s mentioned. Second time: don’t
say the word ‘head’ aloud, but still touch it. Each verse thereafter, add another
body part that you touch but don’t mention aloud until you do the whole song in
silence. Then go through one more time singing all parts but much faster.

suspended by your braces when from a lamppost in the sky
Glory glory what a hell of a way to die
And he aint gonna jump no more (without his boots on)

Everybody steps on me, that is why I'm cracked you see

Chorus: I'm a nut

Called myself up on the phone, just to see if I was home
Asked myself out on a date, got to be ready by half past eight

Took myself to the picture show, sat myself in the very back row
Wrapped my arms around my waist, got so fresh I slapped my face

Well I can sing and I can dance, I wear ruffles on my underpants I'm a nut

I'm now a little icicle, sitting on a bicycle
Sun came out and melted me, that is why I'm wet you see

    …Take That poster..and then I put it ..in the pop-up toaster.
    … can of Tizer ……and then I put it….. in the liquidiser.

Land of the Silver Birch
Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver,
Where still the mighty moose wanders at will;
Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more,
(Boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom).

My heart is sick for you here in the lowlands,
I will return once more, hills of the North.
Blue lake and rocky shore, etc..
(Boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom).

Swift as a silver fish, canoe of birch-bark,
Thy mighty waterways carry me home;
Blue lake and rocky shore, etc..
(Boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom).

Here, by the blue lake's shore, I'll place my wigwam,
Close to the water's edge, silent and still;
Blue lake and rocky shore, etc..
(Boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom-diddy-ai-dai, boom).

My name’s Joe
Hello. My name's Joe,
And I work at the button factory.
One day my boss came up to me and he said:
”Hello Joe are you busy, are you busy, are you busy are you Joe?”
And I said “No”
So he said "Press this button with your left hand."
So I did.

A chant rather than a song; actions start at the end of each "verse" and carry on,
adding "right hand," "left foot," "right foot," "nose," "tongue."

Hello. My name's Joe,

One day my boss came up to me and he said:

So he said "Your fired!"

Swing low sweet chariot
(Chorus) Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home;
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home.
I looked over Jordan, and what did I see, Comin’ for to carry me home;
A band of angels coming after me, Comin’ for to carry me home.
If you get to heaven before I do, Comin’ for to carry me home;
Just tell all my friends that I’m a coming too, Comin’ for to carry me home.
I’m sometimes up and sometimes down, Comin’ for to carry me home;
But still my soul feels heavenly bound, Comin’ for to carry me home.
I’ve never been to heaven, but I’ve been told, Comin’ for to carry me home;
That the streets in heaven are paved with gold, Comin’ for to carry me home.

We come back from hunts and wars, Greeted by our long-nosed squaws

Wind-up Akela
Once a Pack of Cub Scouts camped in an open field
Under the shade of an old oak tree
And they sang as they watched and waited ‘till the sun went down
"Who’ll come and wind up Akela with me"
(Chorus) Wind up Akela, wind up Akela, who’ll come and wind up Akela with me
and they sang as they watched and waited ‘till the sun went down
"Who’ll come and wind up Akela with me."
Down came Bagheera, bringing cups of orange squash,
up jumped the Cubs and grabbed them with glee
and they sang as they drank and mumbled through the biscuit crumbs
"Who’ll come and wind up Akela with me."
Wind up Akela..........
In went the Cubs all tucked into their sleeping bags
up spoke the youngest "I want to do a wee!"
and they sang as they argued whose turn it would be next
"Who’ll come and wind up Akela with me."
Wind up Akela...........
Up strode Akela, bringing back the youngest Cub
"You’d better watch your step" said he
"For I’ve heard you singing ever since this afternoon
who’ll come and wind up Akela with me.
Wind up Akela...........
Silence descended all across the camping ground
All the tents were quiet, one, two, three
Save for one little voice, which murmured as he went to sleep
"Who’ll come and wind up Akela with me."
Wind up Akela............

Woman stood at the churchyard door
A woman stood at a churchyard door                        oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
Where many a woman had stood before                       oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
Saw three corpses carried in                              oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
Each did wear a ghastly grin                              oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
The worms crawled in and the worms crawled out            oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
In at the ears and out at the snout                       oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
They went in thin and came out stout                      oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
Woman to the corpses said                                 oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
Will I be like you when I'm dead?                         oo-oo-oo-oo,   ah-ah-ah-ah
Corpses to the woman said.......YES!!!

You’ll never get to heaven
You'll never get to Heaven (Oh you'll never get to Heaven)
In an old Ford car (in an old Ford car)
'Cos an old Ford car ('cos an old Ford car)
Won't get that far (won't get that far)
Oh you'll never get to Heaven in an old Ford car
'Cos an old Ford car won't get that far
I ain't gonna grieve....... my Lord no more
I ain't gonna grieve my Lord
I ain't gonna grieve my Lord
I ain't gonna grieve - my Lord no more

You'll never get to Heaven:
        on a ping pong ball, 'Cos a ping pong ball...... is much too small
        in a limousine, 'Cos the Lord don't sell...... no gasoline
        in a Jumbo Jet, 'Cos the Lord aint got..... no runways yet
        in a Girl Guide's arms. 'Cos the Lord don't want.... those feminine charms
        on a Boy Scout's knee, 'Cos a Boy Scout's knee'.......s too knobbly
        in a rocking chair, 'Cos the Lord don't want..... no rockers there
        in a wicker chair, 'Cos the Lord don't want..... no baskets there
        in a biscuit tin, 'Cos a biscuit tin's..... got biscuits in
        in an apple tree, 'Cos an apple tree’s......got roots you see
        on roller skates, 'Cos you'd slip right past...... them Pearly Gates
        with a dog as a pet, 'Cos the Lord ain't got ....... no lamp-posts yet
        on a plate of glass, 'Cos a plate of glass..... will cut your leg
        with a bottle of gin, 'Cos the Lord won't let....... no spirits in
        in *******'s pants, 'Cos *******'s pants........ are full of ants
        on water skis, 'Cos the angels don't........ like hairy knees
Oh I want to go to Heaven and I want to do it right, so I'll go up to Heaven, all dressed in white
Oh one fine day, and it won't be long, you'll look for me and I'll be gone
And if you get to Heaven, before I do, just drill a hole and pull me through
But if I get to Heaven, before you do, I'll drill a hole, and spit on you
That's all there is, there is no more, St Peter said, as he shut the door
Oh there's one more thing, I forgot to tell, If you don't go to Heaven, you'll go to...bed
And that's the end, St. Peter said, as he closed the gates, and went to bed
