Beavers

For boys and girls aged between 5.5 and 8 years old.

Our colony meet on Thursdays from 1800 to 1900

Our beaver colony is run by Max Lau, and assisted by Rosa Sullivan, Flora Lau and Hannah Houston.

Beavers meet in ‘Colonies’ – clubs that are very different from school although learning is interspersed amongst the fun!

Beavers play lots of games and will have opportunities to go on fun activity days and outings (with activities such as archery, caving and wall-climbing and many more).

They also learn about camp cooking and basic scouting skills in addition to that, basic survival and life skills. The District also arranges competitions, outings and challenge events which they will invite Beavers to join in with.

Subs

Scouting is a charity and all our leaders and helpers are unpaid volunteers. However, we do need to charge subscriptions to cover the cost of running the group but we keep these as low as we possibly can. Details of current rates can be found here.

We also charge a one-off fee payable when the Beaver is formally invested into the Group. This helps to cover the cost of the necker and woggle provided and any badges earned throughout your child’s time in the Group.

Joining us

Our group is well attended and sometimes there will be a waiting list. To make an enquiry about places, please email our Beaver Leader at beavers@16hw-scouts.org.uk

More membership information can be found on our Join Us page.
