Each year, East Dorset District hosts a big event, ‘Beaver Activity Day’, rather a misleading name though as it is more than one day! For many Beavers it is often their first opportunity to spend a night away from home with friends. Most from Longham chose to stay overnight and none of the brave Longham Beavers had any problem doing so.
Most importantly, the event had lots of fun-filled activities. Firm favourites with the adventurous youngsters were the crate stacking, archery, nerf guns and cave bus. These were interspersed with with some creative activities like tie-dying and indoor crafts.
The event helped all of them towards achieving a range of badges and inspired many to take on their next Scouting adventure.
