This weekend twenty-four 1st Barnham Beavers joined up with over 100 other beavers for an out of this world experience at the Arundel and Littlehampton District Beaver Space Camp.
Blasting off from Littlehampton at 09:45 hrs on Saturday, the Space Beavers participated in various activities; space challenges, solar experiments, astronaut training and rocket launching, to name just a few. Thanks to some last minute support from the technical team at Mission Control the Space Beavers were able to establish a satellite link and thus watch the England vs Sweden FIFA World Cup match!
The Space Beaver’s shuttle took them closer to the Sun than planned! Despite the extreme heat, all successfully completed their space walk and returned to Earth on Sunday at 13:42 with only a few minor bumps and scrapes. To acknowledge their achievements, Captain Hedgehog presented all Space Beavers with the Space activity badge and special mission badge at a ceremony before being reunited with friends and family.
Thorough planning and preparation is essential for all Space Missions; our thanks go to Captain Hedgehog and her support crew for piloting another successfully beaver mission 🚀

This week our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Peregrine Explorers took on the Trim Trail Challenge at Murrell’s Field, Barnham.
This sponsored event consisting of ten obstacles; chin ups, rope climb, sit ups, stride jumps, balance beam, monkey bars, run and leap, step up bench, parallel bars and shuttle run. It was certainly a challenge, but great fun too! Check out the photo gallery below.
All proceeds from the event are supporting two Peregrine Explorer Scouts; Lottie and Josh (both previously 1st Barnham Scouts) to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree in USA 2019. With part of their fees enabling Scouts from developing countries to attend the Jamboree.
So far, the sponsorship raised from the Trim Trail totals £412 [Update 19/07/18: Total raised = £450], and with some sponsorship yeah to be received we hope to reach our goal of £500. A massive THANK YOU to all the sponsors and the beavers, cubs, scouts and explorers for taking on the challenge.

Today’s Angry Birds AGM was a flying success, even if we do say so ourselves.
What better way to liven up our Annual General Meeting, than make some modroc ‘angry birds’ (prepared during Beavers, Cubs and Scouts over the last two weeks), insert bird into a catapult and fire it at a wall of cardboard boxes! Watch the birdie fly in the slow motion video below.
Today we have published our Annual Report & Accounts 2017-18, ahead of our AGM on Saturday 16th June. Limited printed copies of these documents will be available at the AGM, parents of members and supporters are encouraged to review these documents prior to the meeting.
Building dens is a real treat when you are a child, and even more fun when you are an adult! We need you to come along to Beavers or Cubs and support our young people. Not just to build dens, but help do map work, craft, walking, camping and make stuff from bits of wood (we call that pioneering). What we need is an extra pair of hands to help the leaders provide these fantastic activities. Interested? Contact Mark email@example.com
