Beaver/Cub Camp Srahan 2014

Our Cubs and Beavers are just back from their Annual Camp which was this year held at Srahan Scout Centre Tipperary.With the weather perfect all weekend a great time was had by all.The cubs arrived on Friday evening and as we had Meelick cubs also with us they spent the evening getting to know each other.After breakfast on Saturday the Beavers arrived and we started our bases which were all fun based.Once again the bouncy castle was the hightlight of the bases.Later Leaders and cubs/Beavers took part in a water fight which was great fun for all the boys/Girls.In the evening the great Panini arrived and we had a magic show and balloon show from him.We finished the evening with a very lively camp fire and disco.Again this was hughly enjoyed by all.Some of our beavers were invested during this campfire.
Sunday was taken up with breaking camp.Before we left Srahan we presented Joe Minihan with the person of the Camp award and Liam Kelly was presented with the Cub of the Year Award.All the Boys/and Girls got badges.
we departed Srahan Scout Centre after a hugely successful and enjoyable weekend.
Thanks to the Leaders of both Caherdavin and Meelick for looking after all the Cubs and beavers over the weekend and finally to all the Boys and Girls well done on being very well behaved which makes our job so easy.
Thanks to Group Leader Des and SecretaryCatherine for coming our and paying us a visit
