Beavers are at home on the water at the Wokingham Waterside Centre

Swift Beavers showed off their aquatic skills when they visited Wokingham Waterside Centre for a katakanuing session at the end of the summer term.

Dark skies and a torrential downpour couldn’t dampen the spirits of the enthusiastic Colony that first enjoyed a picnic under canvas and then went through the safety procedures with the Centre’s instructors. Once fitted with life jackets and paddle, groups of four or five boarded their katakanu with an adult and cast away!!

As a result of an afternoon of fun on the water, playing games and racing each other, the Beavers dried off and were then awarded their Time on the Water badge – well done!
