Twenty Beaver Scouts from Clutton and Midsomer Norton Scout
Groups, with young leaders from Saxon and Titan Explorers, slept
over at Radstock.
Activities included outdoor tent pitching led, in the wind and
rain, by young leaders from Titan Explorers; a treasure hunt,
mini-catapult and camp blanket making, build-your-own beaver and
human hungry hippos. In the evening there was a camp fire.

home, earning them a special Nights Away badge.

Another said: "Oscar and Dexter have been raving about it all
day and also sharing stories - it's had a really positive impact on
their confidence. I really appreciate it; so do they."
