Take 100 Beaver Scouts, a cartoon theme, lots of food, games, prizes and fun and you've got the perfect mix for Houghton-le-Spring's Beaver Bash 2012. Beavers from the eight colonies in the district, including our newest recruits from Eppleton, near Hetton-le-Hole met in Washington for a mega-party. 

Games led by young leaders included pass-the-parcel, musical statues and wacky races! Adult volunteers supported young people make friends and have lots of fun in a way that only scouts can do! The infamous 'Gangnam Style' was a big hit with beaver scouts, showed no hesitation in showing off their moves.

Beaver Scout Emily, aged 7 said "I'm dressed Cinderella, isn't it good! I've been dancing and having fun with my friends. Its been so good. I've even won a prize."

After a lot of dancing to cartoon classics the hungry beavers sat down to enjoy a well-deserved snack, prepared by their adult volunteers. 

Houghton-le-Spring District supports young people of all ages to work together with their adult leaders and learn from one another through the fun, challenge and adventure that Scouting brings. Events such as the Beaver Bash, allow the 20+ adult volunteers who lead the youngest section to collaborate, sharing their skills and talents and develop exciting programmes for young people.
