Our Beaver Colony
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week.
- Age range: 6 – 8
- Meeting times: Friday, 6pm to 7.15pm
- Meeting Place: The Scout Hut
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.
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 challenge awards and badges available that Beaver Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.
The Link to the Cub Scout Pack is made over a period of four to six weeks during which the youngster will gain their Moving-On Award.
