Every autumn we join the Beaver Scouts from across the Cambridge City District for CAMBAD.
One of the first years we went we chose "Pirates" as our theme.
A few highlights
We began by taking part in 6 activities
Walking the Plank
We were rewarded for walking the plank (obstacle course) by receiving a tattoo.
Who stole Brown Beard's gold?
Toasting marshmallows and bread over a campfire. (after a safety talk from "Bear")
Digging for Gold
Digging on Treasure Island.
Creating a "Pirate" themed Collage
Orienteering around the campsite to find the Treasure Chest which was filled with chocolate coins!
We then had our Pirate Grub: sausage, mash and beans and swiss roll and custard.
Games and Campfire
This was followed by a wide game, all the Beavers played a game of "Pirate" style cops and robbers.
After our picnic tea we had a brilliant campfire with lots of songs, including "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and a Beaver version of "Singing in the Rain"!
