The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old, and meet for an hour per 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.
Our Beaver Colonies are organised into smaller groups called Lodges.
Riverbank Colony meets on a Tuesday between 17:30 and 18:30. Our Lodges are: Newts, Rabbits, Owls and Frogs.
Safari Colony meets on a Friday between 16:30 and 17:30. Our Lodges are: Elephants, Lions, Cheetahs and Giraffes.
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.
