Hi Parents, as you know we have our overnight coming up on the 27th in the Scout hall and the County summer camp in June. It is essential that the Beavers have the correct equipment for this.
The Outdoor Adventure Store (Scout Shop) on Cruises Street are currently running a special offer (see below) for a 65L Backpack, a 2 season sleeping bag and a kit/ground mat. This kind of set up would serve them for the next few years – through Beavers and on into Cubs. If anyone registers online for the outdoor adventure store they will receive a 5 euro voucher off their first purchase and it’s free delivery over €50 euro.
It will allow them to fit everything they need into one bag for their camping adventures. This is especially important as they will be expected to carry their own gear into and out of camp.
This is only a recommendation; please do not feel you have to buy this one, we just feel it’s a very good set up that will last them a few years.
Radar stores in Foxes Bow Limerick will also do a deal for the recommended beavers kit. 65L backpack, vango 2 season sleeping bag and a roll mat for 75 euro this includes a Caherdavin Scout group discount.
