Beavers

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between eight and eight years six months.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.

The Beaver motto is Fun and Friendship and their programme reflects this.

The Beaver colony at Combe Down meets every Wednesday.

Due to the success of our Beavers we are now currently full and not adding to the waiting list. We would like to open a Second Colony which will meet on Saturday mornings. If you would be interested in helping with this exciting opportunity please fill out the contact form.
