Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They consist of smaller groups of Beavers called lodges. They 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.
After a few weeks of going to Colony meetings, a new beaver scout will make a promise at a simple Investiture ceremony and this makes them a member of the worldwide Scout movement.
Meeting times are Tuesday`s during term time between 5:45 and 7:15pm
Beavers do lots of fun activities like making things, playing games, singing songs, learning about new things and making new friends. We also take part in District events and outings, usually held at weekends. Beaver scouts have a number of joining-in and activity badges that they gain after regularly attending meetings and completing a number of challenges.
The colony also has regular activity sleepovers throughout the year. These are usually centred around a particular theme and allow the Beavers to complete one or more badges over a weekend. These weekends count towards many of the Staged Activity badges offered in Scouting.
The Beaver Scout Promise
I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.
