Beaver Scouts

A Beaver Scout Colony has both male and female members who are aged between 6 and 8 years.

Beaver Scouting is about:

  • Having fun
  • Making friends
  • Keeping the Promise
  • Sharing
  • Making progress
  • Using a variety of groupings

These underpin all that is done in the Colony. Using a variety of methods, Beaver Scouts are guided to:

  • Learn about themselves
  • Get to know people
  • Explore
  • Care
  • Be creative

Leaders are encouraged to approach each of these areas in a variety of ways by including activities sometimes close to the Beaver Scouts’ own experiences, sometimes based in the local community and sometimes introducing them to issues in the wider world.

There are Beaver Colonies in Bellfields (2), Onslow Village (5), Jacobs Well (J), Normandy (N), Portsmouth Road (9), Stoughton (S) and Wood Street (W).
