Beavers Picnic – 12th June 2010

Beavers Picnic – 12th June 2010

After a bit of a frantic start to get all forms signed and places confirmed (HUGE thanks to Alison who managed this in 4 days!!)

We set off for Staindrop to the Beavers Picnic with much excitement, a Banner and numerous requests to eat the packed lunches at 9.40am.

There was plenty of activities to do and many new friendships were formed amongst the Beavers.

The Beavers tried their hand at Archery, made numerous crafty things, had faces painted, bounced, pillow-warred and climbed all day long.

Bouncy Castle

A lot higher than it looks!! They all shot over it, the guys at the top were amazed
