Beaver Sleepover 2009

On very sunny weekend in March, 11 leaders and a total of 50 Beaver Scouts meet at PACCAR Scout Camp Chalfont Heights for the first County sleepover in 6yrs.
(Friday night we had 26 Beavers & Saturday night 24 Beavers.)

4 Districts from the County took part, Uxbridge, Ealing & Hanwell, Harrow and Stanmore.
Our theme for the weekend was the Native American Indians and we explained to the Beavers the sort of activities that we were going to be doing.
We started off with some games while some of the leaders went to fetch the firewood ready for the campfire.
After talking to the Beaver Scouts about the rules of the sleepover they got ready to watch a DVD (Tom & Jerry, Donald Duck, Pluto etc. cartoons) while drinking hot chocolate and munching marshmallows. At around 10pm we went outside for a traditional campfire with singing and shouting galore!
The Beavers came back inside at about 10.30pm and set about making up their beds (we had 2 tents for our girl Beavers.) Once the beavers had settled down the Leaders retreated to the kitchen for supper (Chinese takeaway.) The last of the Beavers were asleep just after midnight, so not too later night for the leaders.
