Jul
25

On a beautiful sunny Saturday 8th July 120 Beavers arrived at Waterside Lodge ready to ‘take on’ the water challenges. Split into two groups, they took part in kayaking, bell-boating, sailing, archery and games. They also made a kata-kanu trip to the Island for a Pirate Trail and finished up with a toasted marshmallow – then paddled back to look for the “Penguins”! All had a fantastic day - including the Instructors and Leaders, who enjoyed their time to “Have a Go”! Thanks to everyone for helping to bring the day together and who achieved lots of smiling faces!
