A sunny July weekend saw nearly 400 Beavers from 14 districts come together for the second Hampshire Beaver's County Camp.

With it being 50 years since Scouts first stepped on the moon we took that as our theme and had our Space Camp at Ferny Crofts Scout Activity Centre in the New Forest. Months of planning came together with huge support from Hampshire Scout Archery Club,

Pro-Badge, Tanzania 2020, Top Awards Team, Young Leaders and my extended team to offer a programme including cooking, climbing, archery, exploring, games and more.

This camp was a chance for Beavers across the county to come together and see some of the adventures open to them in Scouting, it was great to see over half of our districts represented and get the support of other teams in Hampshire Scouts to create this great opportunity for our youngest members.

The camp was one of the biggest most of us will get to join in with involving nearly 600 people and so big we had to split the camp fire into 2 sessions.

We were honoured to have visits from Chip the Beaver and Peter Marcus, the new County Youth Commissioner who even got a go on the Go-Karts!

Pro-Badge joined in the fun with crafts including opportunities to make your own badge and rope and the hugely popular water rockets, I hope none landed on your tent!
