Young­sters from 113th Glas­gow ( Burn­side) Scout Group spent a week­end un­der can­vas.

They en­joyed a camp last week­end at Auchengillan Out­door Cen­tre, near Blane­field.

Cubs, Scouts and Ex­plor­ers camped out for the week­end and were joined by Beavers for a day visit on Satur­day.

And the heavy rain which fell on Satur­day didn’t dampen the spirit and ev­ery­one en­joyed them­selves.

Beavers leader Fiona McA­dam said: “They ex­plored the wood­land and built emer­gency shel­ters, made their own piz­zas, and par­tic­i­pated in ac­tiv­i­ties such as grass sledg­ing, crat­ing and archery.

“Ev­ery­one who went along had an ab­so­lutely bril­liant time,” she added.

Beavers meet on Wed­nes­days and all other sec­tions meet on Fri­days in the Scout Hall, Crawfurd Road, Burn­side.

Any new mem­bers who wish to come along will be made most welcome.
