Beavers gather from 6pm to 7pm on Tuesdays and 6:15pm to 7:15pm Wednesdays, catering to young boys and girls aged 6 to 8. Within this welcoming environment, Beavers foster friendships while engaging in collective learning experiences. Their activities typically involve weekly meetings throughout the term, predominantly held in our hall. However, our agenda is dynamic, occasionally incorporating excursions to nearby attractions like parks, campsites, and activity centers. In addition to these regular gatherings, Beavers also have the chance to participate in district events, including sleepovers, and local camps facilitated by our dedicated leaders.

If you have any questions or would like to join the colony, get in touch below.

Beaver Scout Promise

All Beaver Scouts make the promise when they are invested, and renew it yearly (usually during our St George’s Day parade)

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

Variations of the promise for different faiths can be found here.

Beaver Scout Motto

Our Beaver Scout motto is a phrase to help Beavers remember a key scouting value. 

Be Prepared

In our Beavers colony, we organize our members into four lodges, each competing weekly for points. These points accumulate over the year, leading up to our annual awards ceremony where the lodge with the highest tally receives recognition. Leading each lodge is a senior Beaver Scout known as the Lodge Leader, supported by an Assistant Lodge Leader. This structure not only encourages teamwork and friendly competition but also provides valuable leadership opportunities for our members

What We Wear

Blue, with badges sewn on to show off all your Beaver’s achievements

Group Scarf
Ours is Red and Yellow with our Duck badge on the back to show you’re a proud member of our group

Made From leather stops the scarf falling off (Tie a knot in your scarf if outside so you don’t lose it)

Smart Trouser/Skirt and Shoes
For parades and some other events, we like our Beavers to look smart in school trousers/skirt with a pair of preferably black shoes

Where To Buy Uniform

Uniform can be bought online on a number of websites, some of our favourites (with links) are below.

As Beaver Scouts, our young members endeavour to earn several badges, which they proudly display on their uniforms. Serving as a testament to the valuable skills they’ve mastered

We have 3 main types of badges:

Activity Badges
From Animal Friend to Sports, activity badges are earned for taking part in meetings over the term

Staged Activity Badges
Staged activity badges cover skills that you will develop over your time as a Squirrel, Beaver, Cub, and Scout. From Nights Away to Swimming, these badges have a small number on them so you can see your progress

Challenge Badges
Challenge badges are usually completed over a number of weeks/months. Earning all of the challenge badges will award the Chief Scout’s Bronze Award, the highest award a Beaver Scout can earn.

If you are stuck with where to sew a badge, speak to a Beaver leader at your next meeting.

Eventually it’ll be time to “swim up” from Beavers and embrace the new challenge of being a Cub Scout
