Barney Beaver’s 30th Birthday Challenge

Many congratulations to all the Beaver Scouts who took part in the challenge and, of course, the adults who supplied the resources to put on the activities.  As well as completing all Barney’s challenges, Beaver Scouts have also completed lots of criteria for their Beaver Scout training awards. All Beaver Scouts who completed the 30 challenges have been awarded a special certificate.

Birthday Cakes


Backwoods Cooking


Bug Hotel

The entries for the competition included: Photographs and tales of happy smiling youngsters, up trees, having healthy food picnics; cooking smores, taking part in scooter relays, decorating birthday cakes, bug hunting; discovering life in 1986 and creating time capsules, to name but a few. This made judging the winner very difficult and we have decided to award the prize jointly to 3 Colonies:

1st Astwood Bank, 1st Crowle, and 1st Holmer Beaver Scouts.

Well Done and thankyou to everyone involved in this Birthday, for all your hard work and for joining in the challenges.

Barney sends his best wishes for lots more great Scouting in 2017.
