Woosehill Beavers to abseil at Earleywood
Fearless Beavers from 1st Woosehill took on their biggest adventure yet - abseiling down the 30ft climbing wall at Earleywood Scout Centre in Sunningdale. The youngsters took on the physically and mentally demanding task as part of their Personal Challenge badge.
Beaver Leader, Pingu, said: "Our Beavers have never abseiled before because we thought it might be too hard for them. However this group is so brave that we thought we'd give it a go and they all did amazingly, pushing themselves to their own personal limits. This just proves that it doesn't matter how young or small you are, when you are in Scouting you can achieve anything you put your mind to!".
