Annual trip away
Youngsters from Burnside got ship shape at a recent weekend away.
Beaver Scouts from the 113th Glasgow (Burnside) Scout Group recently returned from their annual parent and child camp.
This year, the theme was “Pirate Camp” at the Scottish Scouts headquarters at Fordell Firs, Dunfermline.
The Beavers had a funfilled weekend of piratethemed activities such as Walk the Plank, Buried Treasure and Soak the Pirate.
They also made model pirate ships which were burned on the campfire on Saturday night.
They also participated in some adventurous activities including climbing, abseiling, grass sledges and many more.
At the flag break in front of the whole campsite on the Sunday morning seven of the 113th Beavers were presented with the Chief Scouts Bronze Award by the South East District Commissionaire Eric Donnelly and Fiona McAdam Beaver Scout Leader at the 113th.
Car ter Bodys, Jack Chalmers, Reece Duncan, Hamish Gardner, Joshua Glassford, Callum Mowbray and Dylan Stefani were the recipients of the highest award that Beaver Scouts can achieve.
Eric also made another special presentation to William Goldie of Burnside, giving him a 40-year service certificate.
William has held many roles over the years including district commissioner, 113th Group Scout Leader and many more important positions. He leads the catering team at Beaver camp with his wife Jean – and the Beavers said the food was delicious.
The 113th Beavers meet in the Scout Hall, Crawfurd Rd, Burnside, on Wednesdays, 6.30- 7.45pm. Beavers are the youngest section of the scout movement for six- to eight-year-olds.
For more details call Fiona on 570 3950.
