13 Things You'll Only Know If You Were A Cub Scout

Cup Camp was always in tents (geddit?)

Posted on

1. Conkers keep spiders out of your tent


Yeah, and pinecones keep away snakes *snigger*. The mother of all old wives tales. Ideal for calming down your arachnophobic camping buddy.

3. It's possible to exist on nothing but tomato soup, custard creams and s'mores for an entire week on camp


Your parents were always thrilled when you came home simultaneously exhausted and riding a massive sugar high.

4. You were more likely to do what your Sixer told you than your mum or dad


Parent: Make your bed.

Cub: Noooo!

Sixer: Crawl through that muddy puddle and whip up some tuna pasta.

Cub: Yeah cool, I can do that.

8. Saying the words 'fluffy bunny' with five marshmallows in your mouth (and still being understood) was a true art form

You definitely didn't choose a few of the easier badges to earn to fill up the space quicker.
