Quex Park Birthday Challenge
22nd May 2011
This year we are celebrating 25 years since the start of Beaver Scouts.
Today’s visit to the Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park, near Margate is the first of two exciting days out arranged by Kent County Scouts in recognition of this important milestone.
Our Beaver Scouts spent the morning taking part in a wide range of activities that included camel racing, arts & crafts, panning for gold, archery & crossbows, and science experiments.
As well as a very noisy drumming workshop!
After a picnic lunch (pictured), we had some time in the museum where we were learnt about the nineteenth century hunter and explorer Percy Powell-Cotton.
As a result of his many trips to Africa he subsequently built the museum as an educational tool, and not simply to house his collection.
We ended the day with an incident hike in the woods.
All Beaver Scouts on the day out will receive a specially commissioned Kent Beaver Scout Celebration Badge.
