Hope you had a good Bank holiday!?
..I certainly did, we went to Grafham Water in the morning & booked in for Archery, climbing, high ropes, blind trust trail, Canadian Kayaks (the open Indian style canoes), Power-boating, sailing, ... & more indoor rock-wall climbing!
My dad made us leave early so that we could sign up before all the places went & that way i could do dry activities first then get wet afterwards..
It was a great day, they had a barbecue (£2.50)
& endless cups of tea for 50p (with free re-fills).
It was a bargain day out (free-parking too) & will be happening again in a few weeks time, it would be good to see some more Beavers & cubs there hopefully.
Even if you only wanted to do a few things or just to get some fresh air with the family dog, on your bike or a walk, Grafham is super fun to go to on a warm day.
I'm thinking of taking up archery as a hobby with my Mum & will be going back in a few weeks to tackle & BEAT that climbing wall again, I kept making the mistake of looking down (only ever look up at your next hold).
I'd never climbed before in a harness & rope, it can be a bit scarey at first BUT it's great fun seeing just how far you can get knowing it's safe to go high & aim for the top of the platform, it challenges you , might scare you (a bit) whilst you get your head into adventure mode ..& then you are really proud of what you can achieve!
Hopefully the activities I did day count towards another badge! ..because you CAN do them outside of cubs!
Why not take a look at a badge page (click the badge you are interested in & it will open a link with what you need to do to earn it)!
I need longer arms cos i'm running out of space on my uniform!
