Being a Beaver
When you join Beavers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.
Young people may join Beavers when they are 6 years old and remain in the section until they are 8 years old and are easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts.
The Beaver motto is ‘Be prepared’ and they undertake a wide variety of activities including gaining badges. Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. We also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres such as Queen Charlotte’s Wood.
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best
When and Where Do We Meet?
|Beaver Scouts||6 -8 year olds||Tuesday||18:30||19:30|
Each group of Beavers is called a ‘Colony’, taking its name from a group of these animals in the wild. Within the Colony, beavers are organised into sub-groups known as ‘Lodges’ which are named after trees. We have the following Lodges in our Beaver Colony:-
Each Lodge is made up of around 6 beavers of a range of ages and new beavers usually join a Lodge in which they know at least one person.
Typical Beaver Night
We welcome parents and carers to come in anytime if they want to experience or know more. If you have any questions regarding the nightly or term programme please do come in and speak the Beaver Leader(s).
