Ask any current or former Beaver about what they remember most (and enjoyed most!) about being in Beavers and they will probably say “the Sleepovers”. Camps give the Beavers the opportunity to go away together and to take part in activities that they would not otherwise be able to do at regular Colony meetings. Nights away are an important part of the adventure of being in scouts and are needed for the Beavers to complete their Bronze Challenge Award.
Beavers can look forward to more camping in the future, now that “The Scout Association” have lifted the restrictions on Beavers sleeping under canvas for a whole weekend. Our group leaders have their Nights Away permits, which will mean even more camping in the future!!!
