Beaver Climbing Day

Durham Scouts are pleased to announce our first ever beaver scout climbing day as follows:

  • Date: Saturday 2nd February 2019
  • Times: The event is now FULL and no more bookings are being taken. Sessions will be from 9am to 11am through to 3pm to 5pm
    • 9am - 11am: FULL
    • 10am - 12noon - FULL
    • 11am - 1pm - FULL
    • 1pm - 3pm - FULL
    • 2pm - 4pm - FULL
    • 3pm - 5pm - FULL
  • Cost: £1.50 per Beaver Scout (does not include transportation)
  • Location: Simonside Wall, South Shields (see map below)

We don't include beaver scouts in the county 'Climb When Ready' climbing competition because it is already full to capacity with other sections and the competitive format and scoring is not suitable for beaver scouts. Although many districts now run their own district climbings days, beaver scouts are not always included.

The county beaver scout climbing day is about introducing beaver scouts to 'proper' climbing with belayers and climbing routes (a step on from 'clip and climb'), but it's not a competition and it's all about fun with our fantastic belayers from the county climbing team.

Each two hour session includes 30 minutes for registration, putting harnesses on, a safety briefing and warm up; an hour of climbing on simple routes in small groups; 30 minutes to take harnesses off and have a drink of squash and a biscuit.

Places for each session are limited (we have a limit of 240 places for this first beaver scout climbing day) and will be alloacted on a first to book basis. We will ask you to choose up to three sessions to maximise your chances of getting a place (if we cannot allocate any of your chosen sessions we will contact you with an alternative)

Please indicate how many Beaver Scouts you are booking for when you complete the form. We will then confirm your session and provide you with payment details. Please then send payment to confirm your booking (your booking is not confirmed until payment is received).

Note that you will need to bring a completed Durham Scouts Medical and Consent Form (Under 18) for each beaver scout taking part and hand it in at registration.
