Big Day Out 2017 – Beavers

BDO 2017 - Beavers Banner

Join us for a day of adventure and the famous Beaver Picnic on Saturday 10th June 2017 at Moor House. Get ready to walk the plank as we enjoy a pirate themed day of activities.

What's happening?

We've got a great line up of activities on offer including crate stacking, bouncy castles, archery, toboggan run and lots of group provided activities as well. This is how the day will shape up:

  • 10:00-11:00        - Leaders can arrive onsite, check-in and setup tents & bases,
  • 09:30-10:45        - Beavers arrive onsite and check-in (we'll allocate you an arrival time),
  • 11:00-13:00        - Activities running,
  • 13:00-13:45        - Beaver Picnic,
  • 13:45-15:45        - Activities running,
  • 15:45-16:15        - Closing Ceremony with campfire, songs and prize giving,
  • 16:15-16:30        - Colonies re-group, and get the Beavers ready to leave.
  • 16:30-17:30        - Beavers and Leaders start to leave site (we'll allocate you an arrival time).
  • 16:45-17:30        - Leaders pack up tents, bases, tidy up and leave site .


001The cost is just £5 and includes all activities, a badge and unlimited drinks. The Beavers will need to bring a packed lunch as this isn't included in the cost.

We are asking every group to provide an activity for the day, which other Beavers can take part in - we'll ask you when you book what you can bring. Be creative and come up with your best pirate inspired idea!

We're also encouraging all groups to make a banner for their group which we'll parade during our opening. The best one will even win a prize!

How to book

Bookings are now open and close on the 19th May at 5pm, or earlier if the maximum capacity is reached.


We're looking for a enthusiastic team of volunteers to help us during the day. If you're not coming with a group, we'd love to hear from you. You can even join our Events Team BBQ on the Saturday night.
