Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of Scouting, they are typically from 6 to 8 years of age.
The Beaver Scout Motto is “Fun and Friends” and this accurately describes the form the meetings take! Typically, a meeting could include games, craft, stories and acting; they seldom include silence! We also get out and about as much as possible – going on hikes, pond dipping, climbing, etc.
Beaver Colonies are named after Canadian rivers. Each Colony is led by a Beaver Scout Leader (BSL) and is divided into “Lodges”. The BSL will appoint an older Beaver Scout as a Lodge Leader.
Meetings are from 5:00 to 6:15 pm in the Scout HQ. The Beaver Colonies are:
- Clearwater, who meet on Mondays;
- Willowlake, who meet on Tuesdays;
- Windfall, who meet on Thursdays.
Beavers go up to Cubs in the term after they reach 8 years of age.
How to Join
Our Group is currently fully subscribed in all Sections and we are only accepting registrations for children who are under 6 years of age for future Beaver intake. The Scout Association may help locate other Groups with available spaces.
However, if you are also willing to become a Leader for our Group, then we would be very happy to have a further discussion.
