Four girls from Salford district are celebrating after achieving the highest award at Beaver Scouts for their age group. Olivia from the 100th Salford (St Lukes) in Claremont, Ellie, Clara and Molly-Jo from the 88th Salford in Kersal received their Chief Scout’s bronze award badges and certificates at an activity camp from the Salford District Commissioner, Ann Salt.
The bronze award is given for completing six challenge badges from fitness, creative and global themes to promise, friendship and outdoor activities. The Beaver Scouts had to try a number of different activities such as putting up tents, learning about the Country Code and first aid.
Achieving the top award in Beavers is just the start of a range of badges that can be awarded to young people from the ages of six to twenty five years old and encourages fun and adventurous activities along the way.
At the activity camp the Beavers had the chance to try archery for the first time, improving their skills and spending hours outside in the fresh air. The leaders from the 100th and 88th Salford are very proud of the girls efforts and hope that the successful trend continues.
