MORE than 100 Huntingdonshire beaver scouts travelled around the world in 18 hours during a big sleepover held in St Ives.
The 152 youngsters took part in Cambridgeshire's possibly biggest sleepover at Westfielde Junior School and Copley Scout Centre.
Games and challenges were inspired by different countries around the world.
The mayor of St Ives, Councillor Deborah Reynolds, sent the beavers in search of the lost Mayan Gold in Central America followed by an African Safari, a walk along the Great Wall of China and an exploration of some Spanish caves.
