Scout Unit Trip to Spike Island – Beaver Photos

The perfect weather was a fitting backdrop to a fantastic day trip for the Beaver and weekend adventure for the Cubs and Scouts.

A fun packed day was started and finished with a wonderful ferry trip from Lower Aghada Pier to Spike Island and back, the rest of the day was exciting and tiring for all of the Beaver Scouts.

From island hikes, orienteering, prison tours, obstacle courses and boat trips around the naval base, the beavers didn’t have a spare moment to catch their breath.  The hot dog at the end of the day before they boarded the ferry was most welcome.

Gold Standard for Aghada Beavers

For the second year in a row,  Aghada beavers were awarded the Gold Standard for their planning, preparation and range of activities. After the inspection in April by the County Officials, we received the award at the county day in Kilcully in June.

The Gold Award is the highest award available and shows the greatdynamic and vibrancy there is in the 66th Aghada Beaver section.

Congrats to all beavers and leaders on this outstanding achievement.

 

Beavers on the Water

After a few false starts, due to the inclement weather, the beavers had a fantastic night from Aghada Pier on a sun soaked evening.

Pat’s excellent organisation and ability to talk people into loaning their boats and kayaks was very much appreciated by the beavers who thoroughly enjoyed their time on the water. First though was their safety talk and the checking of their buoyancy aids.

Beaver Visit to Guileen Irish Coast Guard Station

A great evening was enjoyed by all when the Irish Coast Guard Station welcomed the Beaver Scouts to their station at Guileen. The Beavers really enjoyed the activities organised by the coast guard team, which were informative and fun. They learned new emergency skills, got to try on the emergency gear and also got to take part in their own rescue search .
