Beavers, Cubs and Scouts share Christmas Campfire

Added 17/12/2015 test

Over 80 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from 66th Bath (Weston Village) Scout Group, along with their leaders, enjoyed a Christmas Campfire together at their local Scout Campsite.

The boys and girls, aged 6 to 14, gathered at Bath District's Cleeve Hill campsite for an evening of songs and skits around the fire.

Some of the older Scouts led the Beavers and Cubs in songs including "Penguin" and "Quartermasters Stores" before hot chocolate and mince pies were served by the Group Executive Committee, assisted by a team of a parents.

The event is part of the Group's programme of group events, aimed at getting the whole group together for a shared event at least once per term. Group Scout Leader, Dan Spencer, said "We see it as really important for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to get to know each other, as well as the leader teams of the other sections, as it helps develop a real feeling of being one Scouting Family. It also makes the transition from Beavers to Cubs, or Cubs to Scouts, much easier for the young people, as they already know members and leaders of the older sections."

Other Group Events include Group Camp and an annual Group Coach Outing. Over the final week of term each section will be enjoying a Christmas Party at the hall
