Beaver/Cub Camp 2012

This year the Beavers and Cubs came together to run a joint  camp this year in the Srahan Scout Centre with perfect weather. The Cubs arrived Friday night and camped for 2 nights (five of the senior cubs bivyed for the two nights). We were joined on the Saturday afternoon by the Beavers who were camping for one night.

On Friday the Cubs arrived to find their tents up and a bouncing castle waiting for them. The older cubs went off to build a bivvy shelter and a gateway for the campsite. That night we went for a walk through the forest

On the Saturday morning the Ventures and Scout Leaders ran activities around the centre including fire lighting, making pop corn on a camping stove, semaphore, bamboo pioneering and a blind trail. That evening we had an amazing campfire led by Peter Roche (former Cub Leader in Caherdavin). The next morning the beavers and cubs helped take down the tents before being collected by the parents.

Thanks to all the Scouters and Ventures for their work this weekend. Thanks also to Peter Roche for running a brilliant campfire and to Pat Guilfoyle for helping us transport gear. Photos of this event can be found by clicking the below link
