Being a Beaver
When you join Beavers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.
Mondays – 6.00pm till 7.15pm
My name is Jill and I run the Beaver Section and have been here since 1989. Both boys and girls can join Beavers from the age of five and three quarters to eight years old.
Beaver activities are all about having fun, making friends, learning life skills, adventure and achievement with a mixture of games and crafts and earning badges for their uniform.
They will be invited for three to four trial sessions with no payment to see if they like it. After this time they will be invested saying their promise (There are alternative versions for other faiths) and can then proudly wear their sweatshirt and Royal Blue neckerchief.
Completing awards, challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best
Moving up to Cubs
Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Beavers and embrace your next big adventure.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
