Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

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.
