As previously hinted at in our recent news post, we’re auctioning for charity a framed set of 2018 Damboree badges…
We have a few of big announcements this time, so please make sure you read ALL the way to the bottom, ‘cos you know there will be a test….
One badge to tempt them all,
One badge to join them,
One badge to bring them all,
And on the campsite bind them,
In the land of canvas where the bacon fries.
As promised we’ve not forgotten the Turquoise Ninja Army, and their badge criteria. Although posting slightly later than we’d hoped, due to Stuart attending the District Appointments Advisory Committee, news on that to follow later on this month.
Anyhoo on with important stuffs….
We’re very excited to announce the badge requirements for the Emerald Badge, for Cubs, as they join in the excitement of Damboree in 2019.
Carefully chosen to encourage, engage and challenge Cubs, and their leaders, by new members of the Damboree Team, Leigh P. and Ang H. We hope they will inspire you to plan your Damboree eventfor 2019, and maybe join in with your Beaver friends.
As you may remember, Stuart Ball likes to tinker with songs to give them a Damboree feel. He’s done some very cruel things to classic like the opening monologue to War The Worlds, and the Duck Tales theme. So it’s nice to know there are others out there who respect musical culture more than he does.

“We used our Damboree camp as our Group camp this year and our CSL wrote an anthem to sing round the camp fire with the cubs. He is happy for others to use it with a tweak of the group name. Sing it to the Beatles ‘all Together'”.
