Hardworking Beavers in Huntingdon earned their highest awards by camping, cooking and stepping outside of their comfort zones.
Cameron Green, aged seven, received his Beaver chief scouts bronze award, while Robert Stoica aged 11, Georgia Roberts and Alex Brugnoli, both aged 10, got their chief scouts silver awards.
The talented children all attend the 1st Stukeley Meadows Scout Group.
Beavers have to complete all six challenge awards and four activity badges while Cubs have to complete seven challenge awards and six activity badges.
These are the highest awards that a Beaver and Cub can earn throughout their time in the section.
“It is all about stepping outside your comfort zone, trying something you wouldn't normally be interested in, taking the lead in something that scares you and unlocking hidden talents along the way,” said Karen Brugnoli, cub scout leader.
“These children have achieved these awards while having to work independently, meeting via zoom sessions and not face to face which makes it even more of an achievement.
