What do they do?

Beaver Scouts are about Fun and Friends!

Beaver Scouts usually meet once a week in a ‘Colony’, which is run by the Beaver Scout Leader .

Beaver Scouting is also about caring and sharing. Beaver Scouts often help their local community in various ways – planting flower bulbs in the park, or collecting pennies for people in need for example.

Activities are a centred around learning and having fun. These include basic crafts, playing games, learning new skills or visiting new and exciting places.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers in suitable buildings such as Scout centres. This is often the first time a young person spends a night away from home.

After a few weeks of going to Colony Meetings, a new Beaver Scout will make their first Promise, thereby joining the Beaver Scout Section. This also makes them a Member of the Worldwide Scout Movement, which has a Membership of over 25 million! The Promise and motto arevery simple:

Our promise is:
I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.

Our motto is Be Prepared!

Beaver Scouts are the youngest members of the district, and it is here that they learn the important framework for when they swim up in to Cub Scouts (and, hopefully, beyond!).
