For Beavers it was the first time that they have been sleeping in tents taking part in the Damboree to encourage more Beavers to go camping,

Brownsea Island is the birthplace of scouting where Baden Powell had his first camp in 1907. The Beavers and Cubs all set off early Saturday morning to catch the first ferry from Poole Quay to Brownsea Island.
When we arrived we had a walk to the other end of the Island to take part in the Survival challenge, which is one of the actual activities on the original Baden Powell camp. It was nice to get into the woods which was much cooler where we built a shelter, camp fire ( but not actually light it) and built a tripod to hang the cooking pot. Everyone really enjoyed it and was one of the highlights of the day.
In the afternoon we took part in playing games which were also part of the original camp, from throwing pine cones to knock tin cans down, a race to see which group could put a tent up the fastest.
On the return ferry ride we had a tour of Poole harbour before catching the coach back to Somerton.
The sun was shining when the Beavers set of for their Sleepover on Friday evening when they arrived at Kingsdon Village Hall. The first part of the evening was spent on the playing fields learning how to put up tents, and rolling down hills?! Then back to the village hall for camp fire songs and bed.
In the morning the Beavers hiked to Lytes Cary where they took part in lots of fun activities, following trails, playing Croquet, climbing trees and trying to complete as many of the things to do before you are 11 3/4 as possible.
After a packed lunch the Beavers all hiked back to Kingsdon and were ready to go home. All the Beavers completed their Adventure and Explore badges well done to all!
