Our Beaver Scouts Colony meets for an hour in the Aquativity Centre on Tuesday nights. Beaver Scouts are aged 6 to 8. At 8 they swim up into the Cub Scout Pack.
The Beaver programme allows the Beaver Scouts 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.
Some of the badges are aimed specifically at Beavers, whilst others are staged so that the young people can work towards the higher levels as they progress through Cubs, Scouts and Explorers.
Challenge Awards support the programme themes of outdoor and adventure; world and skills. Completing all the awards lead to the Chief Scouts Bronze Award (pictured).
