Beaver Programme

We joined the Cubs, Rainbows and Brownies for a puppet play in Tunstall Hall.  This play follows on from the Porridge Pot play which we saw last year.  The play was brilliant!

For our time on water badge we took a boat trip along the River Medway from the Malta Inn in a boat with Captain Tim.  The weather was lovely and we saw so many other boats cruising the river.

The Beavers wrapped up warm and joined other Beavers in the District for an activity day. The activities included making a rope, tying knots, decorating a biscuit, building a mini pioneering model, building a fire to cook marshmellows on, learning how to put up a tent and how to build a fire. If that wasn’t enough the Beavers then played a wide game and took part in a camp fire. Good day all round.

The Beaver polo shirt is optional and may be worn in addition to and NOT instead of the sweatshirt

The Beaver baseball cap may be worn on outings but not to meetings.  Scouts no longer wear hats as uniform

Other items from the range may be purchased but the only essential items are the four listed above.

 

We would welcome parental help on the activities.  If you are able to help please contact Rowan.
