Summer Beaver Camp

Date: 31st Aug 2019 Author: Richard Smith

Our summer Beaver Camp at the cabin was held from Wednesday to Friday being the first mid-week camp for many years. 9 Beavers arrived at the cabin setting up camp and moved into their tents before supper and bed.  Thursday the beavers built bivvies learnt map skills and tracking then some fire lighting where they cooked Smores on the open fire.  The evening was filled with a traditional campfire and then the movie Peter Pan. On Friday they had a trip to Barnard Castle with a walk around the river using their new learnt map skills.  Once the camp was packed up, they headed to broken scar play park before home and bed.
