Beavers

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family (6-8 years old). Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.

We have two colonies running the same programme on different evenings. They come together for district events, visits and sleepovers. One colony (Monday) is open to boys and girls, and the other one (Thursdays) is open only to boys.

Our Monday colony is led by Puffin and Curlew, the two leaders. Then there’s Penguin and Pipit who are the young leaders. Penguin used be a beaver with us when he was MUCH smaller. Pipit joined scouting recently and is learning alongside the beavers.

Our Thursday colony is led by Grizzly, Koala and Sun. Then there’s Kodiak, Gobi and Iorek who are the young leaders. They all used to be beavers when they were younger and undergo training themselves.

There are 36 beavers enjoying scouting and they get up to all sorts of activities. We are proud that many of them earn their Bronze Chief Scouts Award badge which is the highest one in beavers.
