Pirate camp

An­nual trip away

Rutherglen Reformer - - Beavers - Kenny Smith

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.
