Beavers and adults from  1st Wonersh and 1st Shalford joined more than 400 Beavers and leaders from packs: Epsom & Ewell, Cobham, Fetcham, Reigate, Farnham, Haslemere, Sunbury, Ashford, Bisley, Frimley Green & Mytchett, Lightwater, West End, Brookwood, Pyrford, Caterham and Dorking.

During the weekend more than 50 activities were on offer including zip line, go karts, climbing, caving, bouncy castles, making large bubbles, giant games, target slingshot paint-balling, assault course and many more.

In addition, they learned about rail safety by Network Rail, who brought a train set, which is part of giving Scouting #skillsforlife

Denise Iverson, assistant county commissioner (Beaver Scouts), said:“ It was great seeing all the children and leaders meeting each new and old friends.”

Beaver Scouts are six to eight years old, the next section on from Squirrels who are four to six years old.

Evelyn, a Beaver Scout aged six from Farnham, said: “I liked the zip line as it feels like you are flying when you are doing it.”

Matthew, a Beaver Scout aged seven from Pyrford, said:  “I liked doing all the activities with my friends.”

Titus, a Beaver Scout aged seven from Wonersh, said:  “I liked the caving because it was dark and all the doors to get out.”

Barnaby, a Beaver Scout aged 6.5 from Epsom & Ewell, said: “I liked the campfire because it was nice and toasty.”
