Beavers

16 Jul 2019

This year we took part in our second Damboree at Stedham with 7 Liss Beavers staying overnight and a couple of day visitors on Saturday. We joined in with Partersfield, Sheet and Harting Beaver Colonies and had 50 Beavers staying overnight and another 15 visiting during the day.

We were fortunate with the weather again, warm during the day and not too cold at night and were able to try out lots of scouting skills and work towards challenge badges.

Hopefully, some of these photos will give you an idea of …

This years Funday was no less fun than any of the previous ones, we managed to fit is grass sledging, archery, drone flying, smore making, axe throwing, high ropes and a trip to the circus. Here are some photos to jog some memories.

Funday 2018 was no less exciting than all the previous ones that we have attended. With 16 Beavers and 2 Cubs, this was one of the largest groups we have taken.
These pictures are in chronological order of events which is why they jump around a bit when we were in 2 groups.
Our Beavers were fearless again and climbing to new heights, the photos just do not do justice to quite how high up some of the Beavers climbed.

We spent the night away with our good friends from 1st Petersfield at the Gilbert White Field Study Centre at Selborne. We love going there, not only is there a fantastic wildlife themed programme but the Beavers get to sleep in a 500 year old barn, with underfloor heating, great when the outside temperature is only 1C.
Here are photos of some of the activities that we got up to in our time at the barn.

Sunday was Funday for Liss Beavers who visited National Scout HQ at Gilwell Park. We could not have had a better day for the activities, the weather was great and the queues were short so no waiting around.
Most of our Beavers had a go at abseiling and climbing and there is at least one picture of your child in this collection.

Last weekend, Liss Beavers joined up with Petersfield Beavers for a sleepover in Chichester. This was the first time we have tried an outside sleepover in tents so it was new experience for Beavers and Leaders alike.
In the space of 24 hours we managed to pack in an amazing mount at our space camp and all the Beavers graduated as Beaver Astronauts. We had an astronaut agility test, walked to the Chichester Planetarium, chilled out in tent, cooked marshmallows around the camp fire and fired water bottle rockets.

Sorry for the very late posting of the pictures from the sleepover, the leaders at the sleepover had difficulty getting the access to the site.
The Beavers started off collecting sticks and leaves and brought them back to the barn and using natural clay they made animals. Then they went outside on a bat hunt. Next was sorting out tents and around the campfire, toasting marshmallows and making dampers. Then we went for a night hike and we saw deer. Then lastly they settled down to watch the owl who was …

The Beavers ended the summer term with the traditional water fight against the Scouts, no one knows who won but the  football pitch was well watered and everyone got a hot dog at the end of the day.
