We had a session in the Vysocany area. The Beavers did some rubbish picking to contribute to the community. We were all surprised by how much rubbish there was.

We saw some elderflower trees. Bambi shared her experience when she made elderflower syrup. Some Beavers shared their experience about the syrup at home.

A big thunderstorm cleared the air and made it feel so fresh. We saw some lovely flowers and it was a nice evening walk. We are so grateful to meet in person to enjoy our session.

Many of the Beavers went on a fabulous hike to Koda in the Czech countryside. They learnt about navigation and even visited a cave that had been used by humans 40,000 years ago. During the hike the weather was very unpredictable, rain showers, sunshine, hot and cold, which meant everyone changing clothes regularly.

The hike was about 10km and had plenty of variable terrain and even some challenging mud.

Thanks to the Scout Leader team for turning out to support this event.

Today marks 79 years since the assassination of the NAZI Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovak paratroopers Jozef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš.

11-year-old siblings Jája and Filip from the Junák - český skaut Squad Mustangs in Prost jjov created a video, rather than a boring presentation, with their dad's help. Play the sound!

Thank you to all those who put their lives on the line in the fight for freedom. Lest we forget! ❤ #scout
