Southport Beavers Water Fun Day

On a breezy Sunday morning and afternoon 47 Beaver Scouts from 4 colonies recently enjoyed a Water Fun Day at Waterside Lodge. The morning session was attended by the 48th and 55th colonies and the afternoon session was attended by the 14th and 62nd colonies.
During the day the beavers were given the opportunity to try bell boating, kata canoeing, archery and had a ride on a power boat on which they were taken to the island where they were allowed to explore and toast marshmallows.
The safety boat crews were kept busier than usual as due to the gusty wind the beavers could paddle out but couldn’t paddle back in. I think the crews enjoyed having more to do than usual.
At the conclusion of each session the beavers were presented with a well deserved “Time on the Water” activity badge.
I would like to thank all the instructors for giving their time to give the beavers such a fun day and especially this year thank the safety boat crews who did a sterling job.
