Beaver Scouts

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Joining

Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


Structure

A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

The Great Indoors
26/03/2020 By DC-Russell Brooks

We know the coming days and weeks are going to be difficult for families, as the spread of Covid-19 has caused schools to close. As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, The Scouts want to do what we can to help.

While we normally love the great outdoors, we've pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas (if we do say so ourselves). Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing "I'm bored" every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors. You can find activities suitable for your child by clicking here


You could also help your child complete an Activity badge. Once you've completed all the requirements, why not email photos to your section leader to show what you've done. There are links to our activity badge pages below:

Cub Activity Badges
Scout Activity Badges


Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.
