Beaver Scouts enjoying activities

More than 50 beaver scouts have taken part in a weekend away in the Forest of Bowland.


Boys and girls aged from six to eight headed for the Indian Village at Waddecar scout camp.

Many of the beavers had their first night away from home and were blessed with superb weather on the weekend of Saturday 17 May and Sunday 18 May.

Jane Potter from the Preston and District Scouts said: “The beavers were treated to fun Indian themed evening activities involving a totem pole, a miniature tepee, Indian headdress making and canvas decorating.

“They also had traditional camping activities around the camp-fire with camp-fire songs, making and eating s’mores, sweetie bingo and stories in the camp tepee.

“Daytimes started with early walks around Waddecar, bacon butties and a scavenger hunt. The Indian theme continued with the girls and boys also completing the challenge of building their very own tepee and attaching the canvases they’d made the night before as well as learning the new skill of lassoing.

“At the end of a very full weekend the very exhausted but happy beavers took part in the traditional scouts flag break ceremony and were
presented with certificates.”
