From January through the end of the school year Oak Colony will work on the Creative and Outdoor Challenge Badges and the Imagination, Creative, and Air Activity Badges during our sessions.
While we are indoors the creative focus will be on drama and music through a variety of themed sessions including Carnival and Snow Day. We will also start work on camping skills and hope to visit the Nature Museum.
Once the weather improves, we're outdoors for a hike, a picnic, making and flying a variety of aerodynamic models, and some experiments.
As a Beaver in the Sycamore Colony, you will hopefully have fun, learn new skills, learn more about your local community and the wider world, be introduced to outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative and to make new friends from all backgrounds, nationalities and schools here in Luxembourg! This term (September until Christmas) we will be focusing on Teamwork, the Scout Promise, Global Issues, learning some First Aid, Photography and learning new skills as part of the My Skills Challenge badge. Some of the Beavers have already been on a Group Camp with all the Scouts, and we hope to have a sleepover just for Beavers in early 2018!
