Escaped T-Rex recaptured thanks to Croydon Beaver Scouts

You’d be surprised some of the things you might discover on a visit to the park

More than 300 Beaver Scouts from Croydon enjoyed a dinosaur-themed funday in Crystal Palace park last month, when some even had to round-up an escaped T-Rex.

The dino-themed activities included a trail quiz, crafts, Escape from the Maze, stealing dino eggs from the nest and a display of dinosaurs with their eggs and fossils.

The day was organised by the Croydon District Beaver team and supported by the Beaver Leaders, family and friends.

Croydon Scouting has vacancies for young people between six and 18. Call 0845 265 8311 or go to
