Tiree Beaver Scouts

tkd_scoutsTwenty hardy and excited Beaver Scouts braved the weather on 18th May to attend a fun Activity Day held at the Hynish Centre.

Various events were organised for the group, including a superb visit to the bird hide at Loch a Phuil led by Janet and John Bowler, where the group learned some of the calls of local birds and managed to view some birds through binoculars and telescopes.

PC Tanner excelled himself with his treasure hunt this year, which led to the capture of some of our leaders by rogue pirates!

The group loved the Tae Kwon Do session run by Billy Byfield, as well as the games organised by Will Wright and Derek Campbell. Outdoors, Derek and Will were amazed to find out that 18 Beaver Scouts could fit inside a 2-man tent!!

The day was rounded off with a tasty dinner provided by Monica and Lesley and a game of ‘Dangle the Dummy!’, which involved the group trying to catch a moving sweet with their teeth! The group all earned themselves their ‘Adventure’ badge for their efforts.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this day so successful, and we look forward to more exciting activities next session.
