Space Camp is out of this world
More than 20 Beaver Scouts enjoyed an out of this world experience when they took part in their first parent and child camp.
The 113th Glasgow Burnside Beavers invited their parents to get in on the fun when they descended on the Scottish Scouts headquarters at Fordell Firs Campsite in Dunfermline last month.
This year it was ‘ 113th Beavers Space Camp – It’s Out of This World!’ and the space travellers enjoyed lots of outdoor activities and challenges with a space theme running throughout their fun weekend away.
The 21 Beavers enjoyed grass sledging, climbing, completing obstacle courses, building their own space ship and baking space cookies.
The Beaver parents and child weekend allowed parents to learn more about scouting and accompany their child on their first overnight excursion before they begin attending camps alone.
The youngest of the Scout movement, Beavers are aged six to eight and the 113th Beavers meet on Wednesdays in the Scout Hall Crawfurd Road Burnside.
