Beaver Scouts are boys and girls usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the youngest section in the scouting family.
Beavers meet at the Scout HQ on a Wednesday during term time 17.00 – 18.15 and Thursday 17.30 – 18.30.
We are a very active colony and try to do as many different things as possible. We do activities inside our regular meeting place, go on day visits, and have sleepovers.
In the Autumn term 2018 we have been on camp where we took part in Climbing, Low Ropes and Archery. In weekly meetings we have made bird feeders, walked around the local area and taken part in our local Remembrance day parade
We play games, do crafts, make new friends, explore the outdoors, create things and eventually when the beavers become 8 years old, they move up to Cubs.
Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running beaver meetings! All adult leaders have training and a DBS check, and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified.
Our Beaver Leaders for Wednesday are Badger (Shelley) and Mole ( Angela) . Thursday Beavers are led by Debbie (Otter) and Ratty (Jodie) the Leaders names are based on the theme of The Wind on the Willows.
If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more helpers!
