On Thursday 29th September both Beaver Colonies held a joint meeting at Mullin ny Carty this was the opportunity for each beaver colony to meet new people and for leaders to interact with different leaders and colonies. The evening kicked off with the beavers scavenging for wood to make a fire with. Beavers and Leaders ran off gleefully to get suitable wood and to build a fire.
The Beavers were then asked how to make a fire they have lots of answers with how to do it and we tried different methods until one worked ????.
Whilst the fire grew the Beavers went to attempt the blind fold trail, working in pairs to help guide them the worked together to get round the tricky route with out falling over.
Once completed the Beavers returned to their fire to see that Henry of 1st Malew had looked after it and made it resemble something of a fire ????.
The Beavers then sat round the camp fire. They learnt about fire safety & what to do and then had the opportunity to roast marshmallows over the fire, everyone enjoyed it (with the help of the leaders).
A lot of fun was had by all and a huge thank you must go to Wendy Corkill of 1st Santan cubs for organising it. Hopefully this won’t be last time the two colonies join together for activities and 1st Santan would love to hear from other colonies who wish to join them in activities.
