Beavers

Beavers are our youngest members, and meet for an hour per week either on a Wednesday or a Thursday. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with their friends.

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.

Activities

During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

Further information about badges and awards for the Beaver section can be found here.

The Beaver Scout Promise

There are a number of variations of the Beaver Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. These can be found here.

Unless we are requested otherwise, we tend to use this promise:

  • I promise to do my best
  • To be kind and helpful
  • And to love God.

Uniform

Beaver Scouts may wear a turquoise sweatshirt with the green and black Group scarf (often called a necker) and a maroon woggle, or one of another colour which identifies their Lodge or team.

Uniform and other clothing items can be purchased from the Scout shop located in the hut next to ours and open during term time Tuesdays from 7pm to 9pm. We also sell second hand uniform for those that request it.

The location for Beaver badges on the uniform can be found here.
