Beaver’s overnight to Lissadell

Beavers went on a Sleep over to Lissadell last Friday. We all had a great weekend walking trough the woods where they made trail signs and identified various wildlife. On our return to the camp fire we all had a little sing song and lunch. All the Beavers really enjoyed making smores round the camp fire and in the morning we had breakfast and played more games. lots of fun was had by all.
