Grey & Purple Beaver Colonies enjoyed a fantastic weekend at Ashworth Valley Scout Camp Site.

Arriving on the Friday evening, Grey Colony was soon taking part in activities linked to the My Outdoor Challenge and the Camp Craft Activities badge.  This involved learning some basic First Aid, tying three knots and painting a bug-house ready to collect bugs the day after.

Following on from breakfast, Grey Colony took part in Grass Sledging and Archery Activities during the Saturday morning.

Just after lunch, Purple Colony arrived making 44 Beavers in total.

The Zip Wire was the main highlight of the afternoon.  Other activities included, putting up tents, going on a nature trail (to collect bugs), Pioneering (using skewers & marshmallows), cooking marshmallows over an open fire and making a campfire blanket.

A fully-cooked chicken meal followed for everyone.

The last activity on the Saturday was the campfire with every Beaver in fine song.  The new campfire blankets were worn with pride.  See the Facebook video.

It was time to say goodbye to Grey Colony leaving Purple Colony to complete the activties undertaken by the others the night before, followed by Grass Sledging and Archery on the Sunday morning.

Every Beaver had a fantastic time and the Leaders would like to thank them all for their impeccable behaviour.
