Beavers Cubs Scouts

Beavers

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.

Beavers areaged between six and eight years old. Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader’s discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends). A group of Beaver Scouts is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers is a great way to make friends, that you will hopefully keep all of the way through scouting and beyond. The Beaver Scout has a unique uniform in a vibrant turquoise colour which makes them stand out from the rest (which is useful when they are so small), but it also gives them their own identity in the Scout troop as a whole.

The badge positions are the same as that of the Cubs and the Scouts, but they have their own set of badges geared towards their age group and abilities. Completing the required Challenge badges gains them the reward of the Chief Scout Bronze Award.

Beavers have their own ‘promise’ which they need to learn for their investment:

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

The Beavers Scout Leader is Zoe Plumley, and the Colony meets on Thursdays between 17:00 and 18:15.
