Kayaking fun with the Beavers.

For a while now Chester has been part of an awesome Beaver colony. 5th Sittingbourne. He is a funny little boy so sometimes he doesn't always want to join in with the activities, and he won't even entertain the idea of camp! But over the last few months the leaders have manage to coax him out a bit more.

This weekend it was arranged for the Beavers to go Kayaking! Chester woke up and said he didn't want to go (what a surprise!) but we took him anyway and he had an amazing time! 

They all got a quick lesson on how to use the paddles (that's probably not the name, can you tell I am not down with the boating language?!) 

Then they all had almost an hour on the water! 

They even got to play some games, which were lots of fun and great for their confidence! 

I am so pleased that Chester gets the opportunity to take part in these kind of things. It's really great for his confidence and his social skills. He really had an amazing time, and I think we are super lucky to have found such an awesome Beaver Colony! Millie is on the waiting list too, she is counting down the days until she is old enough to join. I suspect she will be the exact opposite of her brother as she is really looking forward to Beaver Camp!
