Harpenden and Wheathampstead District 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.

Important News about the Scout Shop
14/09/2018 By DC-Russell Brooks

Dear Leaders and Parents, 

There is currently a dispute ongoing in relation to the renewal of the lease of the Scout Hut at Tallents Crescent.  The landlords have unilaterally changed the locks and told us that we can no longer have access to the hut.  We will continue to try to resolve matters and reinstate our access rights, but in the meantime we have therefore had to temporarily suspend the Scout Shop.

Parents, this means that the Scout shop for the time being will not be opening at Tallents Crescent.  Whilst our shop is closed, we have arranged with St Albans District Scouts that our parents and leaders can use their shop.  A  map and opening times can be found at  http://www.stalbansscouts.org/st-albans-scout-shop/ and in the attached.

Parents can buy all core uniform from the shop.  Scarves will not be available from St Albans Scout shop however, as they were stored at our hut and are locked in for now.  As soon as they are accessible again, we will let you know.

Leaders can buy uniform and badges from the shop.  The shop manager has asked that leaders email her details of the badges they want so she can get them ready for collection (sales@stalbansscoutshop.org.uk).  Leaders will need to pay St Albans shop for badges, and seek reimbursement from their Groups direct.

All the best

Russell Brooks
District Commissioner
