What’s the best thing about Beaver Scouts? Activities, trips and making friends are all part of what makes it so much fun for girls and boys. As well as earning activity badges, many Beavers Scouts get to go on camps and sleepovers, often for the first time. Beavers are between 6 and 8 years old. We meet once a week during term time.
What we love to do
Being creative – making things and singing, playing games, going on visits and investigating nature. Learning about themselves, getting to know other people, discovering the worlds of science, nature and technology and Exploring the natural and manmade world are all what makes Beavers fun and full of adventure.
What Beavers have to say
The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather.

"What do we have? FUN!"
"What do we make? FRIENDS!"
"Who are we? BEAVERS!"
We build our programme around the Beaver Badge scheme covering all sorts of topics that help the youngsters find out about themselves and the world around them. By the end of their time in Beavers most of them will gain the Bronze Chief Scout Award -of which they are very proud!
We have one Beaver Colony of 24 boys and girls organised into 4 Beaver Lodges - Blue Kingfishers, Brown Boulders, Green Otters and Red Rapids.
We start and end all our meetings with a Beaver Damn
We also have a long waiting list of youngsters waiting to join . We would dearly love to be able to open a second Colony - just need another Leader.
