|Following on from our Blackpool Tower Sleepover earlier on in the year, our Beaver Scouts were lucky enough to have another opportunity for a night away with their Colony friends as part of our 30th anniversary of the formation of Beaver Scouts at the 38th Rossendale.
The location was Bowley Scout Camp Site and the adventure started for Grey Colony on the Friday evening. A damp night restricted the Beavers to indoor activities which including playing games, making a camp fire blanket and watching a film to wind-down at the end of the evening.
Following breakfast on the Saturday Grey Colony took to the hills with their grass sledges and the archery range.
Purple Colony arrived on the scene after lunch and everyone was split in to three Groups. The afternoon activities were the zip wire, camp craft activities with the Explorer Scouts who were camping onsite and craft work which involved decorating a picture frame ready for a personal photo that they would take home at the end of the camp.
More food at tea time and then everyone descended on the Explorers for a campfire sing-along wearing their new campfire blankets. Grey colony departed soon afterwards.
Sunday morning saw Purple Colony undertake the grass sledging and archery activities the other section had done the day before.
All Beavers will gain not only their night’s away badge but also their camp craft activity badge by attending this weekend.
See our Facebook Album for more photos from the weekend.
