Beavers go science mad!

Last monday the beavers took a trip to the local girls school to see the Science Fair organised by the 6th class students. Our beavers and scouters had a great time at the various stalls which included an electrifying quiz, tin can telephones, balloon rockets and dancing raisens

Thanks to the Girl’s School for letting us attend

Over the October Weekend, our scout den played host to 23 venture scouts from around the county for the county venture scout forum. Over the weekend the ventures took part in workshops on running a venture unit and the county venture programme and had presentations on national events, the explorer belt, youth involvement and the new programme before settling down to work out their motions and programme for the year (without the presence of scouters). On Saturday evening the ventures went to funworld for pool and bowling. 8 ventures from caherdavin participated in the weekend with David Collins elected as our rep on the exec. Photos to come

After the forum the ventures stayed on to do a clean out and inventory of our store room.
