Beaver Scouts are our youngest section comprising girls and boys between 6 and 8 years old. They generally move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, at the start of the school term following their 8th birthday.
The Beaver Colony meets every Thursday afternoon during school term periods between 4:40 and 5:55 pm
We introduce our Beavers to the values of Scouting and they take part in a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities. Beavers like to earn badges. The six Challenge Badges and numerous Activity Badges encourage young people to try something new and also recognise their achievements and abilities. Our programme is designed to be fun. It introduces them to team and cooperative games, craft skills, adventures and builds their confidence and communication skills. Especially popular are out annual sleepover weekend and Family Camp June.
Our Colony is limited to 24 Beaver Scouts. We recommend you register your child to join at least a year in advance of their 6th Birthday.
