136th Beavers had a fun, 4 seasons in one day weekend at Glencree this weekend. Imagination circus tents and performances in the garden, table quizzes, woggle making, hiking around Lough Bray (cut short sadly due to unexpected wind and rain) board games and cinema night!!! All packed into two nights and one day πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ. A hectic and laughter filled weekend.

On Sunday 3rd of March Swords 49th cubs set off for an adventure and Climbed Djouce Mountain, with a spectacular views including Lough Tay.
Made all the more exciting by the recent snow fall. (in someplace it was 2feet deep or more.)
At the top they then cooked sausages which became the tastiest and most rewarding hotdogs they have had.

Hailed as the BEST Hike ever by our Cubs we can say it was a lifetime experience for them.
