Out and About in South Laois
THIRD LAOIS DURROW SCOUTS:
The Scouts in Durrow are delighted with the good weather coming our way. Preparations are well underway for the upcoming county camps and summer camps. The beavers are heading to Fota Island in Cork at the end of June. It will be the first night for some new beavers to sleep under canvass! It’s all really exciting but also a bit scary for some, however they already had a sleepover in their own Den and in the Kilkenny Den, so their parents are now getting used to sleeping away from them! Soon, like the Cubs and the Scouts, they will be practising pitching their tents… a lot of work still to do but it is so much fun! Look out for more reports in the coming weeks ahead.
