As we get ready for the first hike of the new Scouts year with the Beaver group, here’s some info on what Beavers need to bring with them on the day:

  • Packed lunch & drink
  • Newspaper in a plastic bag to use as a seat
  • Wet gear – top & bottoms
  • Strong (ideally waterproof) shoes/boots
  • Change of clothes
  • Change of footwear

We’ll be doing a quick bag check on Tuesday (Sep 30) night in advance so please bring the packed bag that night.
