Autumn Camp 2018

The Cubs and Beavers went to Woodhouse Park Bristol for our Autumn camp taking part in lots of Adventurous activities from Archery, Low Ropes,Crate Stacking, Climbing, Fire lighting and lots more…

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,

With the help of Tesco Bags of Help donation we were able to purchase new tents and a Gas Griddle so we were able to take 40 young people on camp which we would not have been able to do without their help.

The Beavers and Cubs have been going to the Funday at Woodhouse Park Bristol for the last 5 years and very year they ask to go back again. From the pictures below you can see the reason why!

Brownsea Island Visit

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.

Beaver Sleepover Kingsdon

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!
