District Spooks Day
District Spooks Day was held at Thriftwood scout camp and 165 Beavers attended.
Although the morning was a bit chilly the weather was very kind to us and the sun shone all day, happy leaders & beavers.
This year the beavers was asked to bring along recycled rubbish to make a scary monster and what a pile of rubbish we had, the winning group was chosen by Roger Fall and because the beavers had done such a great job, there was 3 winning groups in total.
The beavers were treated to a spooky tour, where they met 2 witches in their house where they answered questions to carry on the path to a wooden house, were they had to put their hand into holes to guess what was in it.
They decorated biscuits, made edible jewelery , made spider and ghosts from lolly pops and made scary finger puppets, they navigated their way through the wood to find on a golden pumpkin.
The Beavers showed their archery skills, bean bag throwing and got very messy with apple bobbing and mummy brains.
At the end of the day the beavers had hot chocolate & cake, then they had a camp fire, were there was a very large fire waiting for us to have camp songs around. All the very creative monsters that the beavers had made was put on the fire with a great big raw from the beavers.
The Beavers was presented with a spooks day badge for their blankets and went home very happy.
As always, the day would not have gone ahead and been very a successful day without the support and help from all the leaders and helpers attending. Not forgetting Sam for a great camp fire and songs.
