Tonight was a very special night as Beavers celebrated the end of their current programme cycle and earned themselves the Animal Friend activity badge. Over the last few weeks, Beavers have encountered all sorts of crazy critters and have done some seriously cool crafts.

The final activity of the award was to make some animals using the Japanese art of origami. Beavers made ducks swimming in a pond from just a few sheets of paper, it's incredible how a few careful folds in a sheet of card can make something so clever!

Tonight was also a special night because Kingfisher awarded 13 Beavers with their bronze Chief Scout's awards. The bronze Chief Scout's award is presented to Beavers who complete the many Beaver Scouts challenge badges and the young people who recieved the award tonight should be very proud of their achievements. Find more pictures of tonight in our photos area.

Beaver Scouts are the first and youngest Section in Scouting and young people can join Beavers at the age of 6. Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. Find out more about Beavers in Washington
