Swift and Kingfisher Beavers left the safety of their Lodges at the 1st Woosehill Scout Hut to scale new heights of achievement at the Junior Treetop Adventure at Go Ape, Swinley Forest. The two Colonies joined together in the last meeting of the summer term to tackle the high wire obstacle course, finishing with a thrilling zip wire ride down from the trees to the forest floor. All the Beavers completed the course and showed great courage and perseverance overcoming the physical challenges and, even more impressively, conquering any personal fears. Maybe we should call them Squirrels, and not Beavers, in future!
