In September the Beavers had a camp at Barnswood. This year’s theme was the Wild West, so the Beavers made their own bandanas, (hobby) horses and played wild west games such as horse shoe throwing (with real horse shoes!), panning for gold and a shooting gallery.
At the same time the Scouts were out on camp and they made their own shelters to sleep in on the Saturday night.
On Sunday, parents were invited out to the camp for a family day. They tried playing the games the Beavers had played the previous day and made their own family dream catchers. After a BBQ lunch it was time for the Group’s Annual General Meeting where the Group’s activities of the previous 12 months were recounted. The Cub of the Year and Scout of the Year awards were presented along with, for the first time, the Beaver of the Year award. Congratulations to the winners!
