Bever Activity Day 9th June 2017

22 June 2017

This is an exciting day with the opportunity to sample a variety of different water activities; these could include Open Canoes, Sailing, Raft racing, Bell Boat Races and or rafted canoe races.


This is the first year at our new base at Hoveringham, our new activity centre on a fantastic lake.


Below are instructions which will help make the Beaver day a success.


Note your Beavers are doing the Dry Activities in the morning so can arrive changed ready for Dry activities. They will be doing a walk  (about 1.5KM) and some other land activities in the Morning, which we expect the Beaver leaders to help supervise. There will be time to change at lunchtime ready for the Water Activities in the afternoon.


Attached is a health form this needs completing by each child and bringing with them or handing to their Beaver leader prior to the activity.
