 Big Thankyou toThriftwood Badge Team

My son is part of the Beavers 6th Billericay. We visited Thriftwood on the 1st and 8th October for their Activity Badge. My son had a great time and enjoyed the activities and learnt loads. I would like to thank you all for your patience and time you gave to the Beavers. Plus he found cooking his own hot dog fab!

Extinguishing Your Campfire

When you're ready to put out your fire and call it a night, follow these guidelines:

  1. Allow the wood to burn completely to ash, if possible
  2. Pour lots of water on the fire, drown ALL embers, not just the red ones
  3. Pour until hissing sound stops
  4. Stir the campfire ashes and embers with a shovel
  5. Scrape the sticks and logs to remove any embers
  6. Stir and make sure everything is wet and they are cold to the touch
  7. If you do not have water, use dirt. Mix enough dirt or sand with the embers. Continue adding and stirring until all material is cool. Remember: do NOT bury the fire as the fire will continue to smolder and could catch roots on fire that will eventually get to the surface and start a wildfire.
