Uniforms

New members or those moving up to a new section may need to get a new uniform. At each age level, there are some second-hand uniforms (mainly Beaver & Cub jumpers) available. If you are interested in one of these, please get in touch with the section leader (Marc/Anna).

If you would like to get a new uniform, you can buy online from the Scout Shop (http://www.thescoutshop.ie/).

The shop visits various parts of the country too and will be in Galway tomorrow Saturday, Oct 31. It will be at Renmore Scout Den (map below) from 12-2pm.

We are planning a walk in Monivea Woods with the Beavers this weekend on Sunday.

The plan would be to leave the community centre at 10.30am and return around 1pm. Depending on numbers, there may be enough spaces in the Scouters cars to bring everyone.

Although the weather forecast seems good for Sunday at the moment, Beavers will need rain gear (trousers & jacket) and waterproof footwear. We’ll also ask them to being a light snack & drink.

Could you please let us know by text to 086 0545329 with the Beaver’s name and whether they can attend or not?

    The first is a trip to the Circus on Friday evening. It is on in Briarhill and the show runs from 7.30 to 9.30pm. We plan to leave from the Community Centre around 6.30pm, returning approx 10pm.
    We have received free tickets for the Beavers and we ask that they be given a max €5 spending money on the night.
  2. Athenry Castle – Sun Sep 27
    The second event is a visit to Athenry Castle on Sunday next. The Beavers will have a guided tour of the castle and watch a short movie about its history. The cost for this event will be approx €3 per child.
    We will leave the Community Centre around 11.30am and return around 1.30pm.

To help us with planning, could you respond ASAP by text to 086 0545329 with the child’s name and whether they can attend the Circus, Castle or Both.

Please note that with 2 events this week, it means that there will not be a meeting on tomorrow (Tue Sep 22) or next week (Tue Sep 29) at the school.

Feel free to text us with any questions.

Beaver Camp Gallery

Hi all,

Beaver Scout year is now officially over after our successful Beaver Camp. We hope all those who attended enjoyed it as much as we did. Thanks to all the parents who supported us over the year. Special thanks to all the Leaders who have given so much time and effort over the past year.

Extra special thanks to Mick Laffey who has done a fantastic job as Beaver section leader for the past few years! Mick is moving on to bigger & better things as overall Group Leader for Claregalway Scouts. He will be sorely missed in the Beaver section!

Here are some photos from the weekend.

Beaver Camp

It’s almost time for our Beaver camp in Doolin! We’ve attached the camping checklist which details the gear that each Beaver will need for the Camp.

Please pay close attention to the items listed in the checklist below, especially suncream (very important on boat trip) and any medication (which will require completed medication form).

Beavers should have all this gear packed in/attached to one rucksack which we will collect from you on Friday evening at the Den. We’ll text time later in the week but we’re guessing around 7pm.

The Day Bag can be brought with them on Saturday morning and should contain a small lunch which they will have while the camp is being setup.

If you have any questions about this gear list or anything else please e-mail back or ring us @ 086 0545329
