The 1st Warfield Beavers hosted the annual Beaveree on June 1 at Camp Tweedsmuir in Fruitvale.
A Beaveree is a gathering of all the local “Beaver Colonies” for a day of fun activities. The 2nd Rossland, 1st Nelson, and 1st Beaver Valley Beavers were all in attendance.
Al Richardson from the Sinixt First Nation was on hand for a stick and drum ceremony demonstration. A representative from Teck operations gave a well received presentation on insects.
The Beavers enjoyed investigating the bug population in several buckets of water from different local waterways.
There were various activity stations that the youth rotated through including: a watchtower and zipline; a climbing wall; leather stamping; homemade fishing hooks; and wooden toy boat building.
Of course, there was the traditional gourmet Scout lunch of hotdogs, veggies, and juice. The tired Beavers went home after a busy day of building.
