Beavers Go Wild in the Woods on a Robin Hood Camp

  • Post category:Blog

Beavers from 1st Woosehill Scouts got a taste of the wildlife when they pitched their tents for a Robin Hood Camp at the Scout campsite at Paddicks Patch, Woodley, on Saturday 7th June 2014.

Twenty three Beavers from Swifts and Kingfisher colonies experienced archery, made bows and arrows and leather wrist bands, went on a hike, mastered knots, tackled an assault course, cooked on a campfire, and went on a night time Bat Walk – all in just 24-hours!

This is the first time the 6-8 year olds from Woosehill have been able to sleep outside under canvas – the result of a change to Scouting regulations that previously stipulated that they had to be inside for camps. The skills learnt from the activities also meant that the group earned the Scouts newly-launched Camp Craft badge.
