Beavers

The Basics

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between seven years and six months and eight years six months.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies 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.
Basics

Joining
Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.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).

Structure
A group of Beaver Scouts is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

Our Beaver Colony
Our Beavers meet at the St Thomas's Church Colnbrook between 6pm and 7:15pm on a Wednesday.

Helping Out
Parents of beavers are encouraged to join the parent rota to helpout on an occasional basis.

For more info or to join, contact the Group Scout Leader or the Executive Chair via the
'Contact Us' page.
