Beavers at Oxclose get creative
Young leaders help to run the beaver programme
Boldly going where no beavers had gone before, beavers at Oxclose strapped themselves into their spaceship and blasted off for an awesome night of space exploration.

Beavers were met at the door by a team of astronauts (adult volunteers and young leaders really got into the spirit!), and were plunged into the darkness of space for a game of torch-light tag. Of course for our budding space cadets, this was no problem.

After torch light tag, beavers lit up the room designing roaring rockets, sparkling spacestations and glowing galaxies with brightly coloured glowsticks.

No intergalactic adventure would be complete without a spot of star-gazing! Our space cadets visited the visual planetarium, and were amazed by the stars, planets, astroids and comets within our galaxy. After so much activity it was time to board the space shuttle and rocket back down to Earth for 7:15, mission accomplished!

Tuesday's activity was part of the beavers 'Reach for the Sky' programme. You can download a copy from our downloads page.

Beavers at 3rd Washington take part in an active programme, which encourages them to be creative, to make friends and to explore the world around them. The programme is ran by a team of adult volunteers who enjoy scouting just as much as our young people. Find out more about becoming an adult volunteer.
