Meet the Cowboys and Indians of Stretford!

On the last weekend in September, Beavers from 4 groups in
Stretford came together for their District Sleepover at Linnet
Clough. The theme for the weekend was ‘Cowboys and Indians’ and the
events were kicked off by a night-time walk, listening for sounds
of wildlife in the style of Native American Indians.

On Saturday, the activities really began and the Beavers enjoyed
a whole host of fun learning to lasso and shoot spud guns to become
real Cowboys as well as how to shoot bows and arrows and follow
tracks like the Indians.sleepover









There were plenty of crafts to take home too including an Indian
headdress, totem pole and hand drum. The Beavers memorialised their
weekend of fun by leaving their colourful handprints on a gigantic
totem pole.







Perhaps not surprisingly, the Beavers staying over on the
Saturday night were rather more tired and ‘sleep’ did form part of
the ‘sleepover’ experience!

Thank you to all the adults who helped to make it a great
