3rd Barnehurst Beaver Colony
Beavers are our youngest members, and they meet for an hour and fifteen minutes each week. 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 girls and boys aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.
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 badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
The Beaver Scout Promise
I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.
The Beaver Scout Motto
Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (necker) and a woggle which identifies their Lodge or team.
