Perfect weather and St Annes were the setting for the 2018 Beaver Scout Sleepover for Grey and Purple Beaver colonies.
Arriving on the Friday evening the Beavers were soon involved in their first activity which was learning the Green Gross Code (ready for our hike to the seaside on the Saturday afternoon).
Following this everyone went outside to the campfire circle where they toasted marshmallows and then sang campfire songs.
Following the excitement of the evening it took until about 1:00 am before everyone had settled down. That was until about 5:30 am when everyone started waking up again!
Saturday morning saw the Beavers participate in two of four activities – Climbing, The Canon Run, Pitching a tent & knots and some basic pioneering.
Prior to lunch the Beavers watched part of the Royal Wedding complete with union flags.
Following a lucky break with a coach the Beavers were taken to the seafront at Lytham St Annes for their afternoon activity. This involved making sandcastles and flying kites on the beach with a spot of treasure hunting and conservation thrown in for good measure.
The Beavers also visited the RNLI lifeboat station where they enjoyed an interesting talk and tour of the brand-new £2.2 million lifeboat.
A 1.5-mile hike then followed to return to the campsite.
Some fun with a giant parachute followed a full roast tea before the Beavers settled down to watch a film complete with popcorn.
Sunday morning was a repeat of Saturday morning activities before finishing packing and a quick trip to the campsite shop.
Everyone had a fabulous weekend and we can’t wait until the next one!
