What do Beavers do?
All sorts of things!
Beavers are active so we plan to do as many different things as possible. We plan to have activities inside our regular meeting place, go on day visits, and even have occasional sleepovers!
We play games, do crafts, make new friends, explore the outdoors, create things and eventually when the beavers become 8yrs, they move up to cubs.
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members of the British Scouting organisation. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities in a balanced programme and work towards Challenges and Activity Badges.
Beaver Scouts discover science, nature and technology, exploring the natural and man-made world. There are opportunities to learn about themselves. To explore their feelings and develop good habits of health and personal safety. They get to know people by finding out about those in their family, the family of Scouting, the local community and the wider world. They care. Growing in their love of the world and responding to the needs of others, the local community and beyond. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
Their bright and colourful identity reflects their aim of ‘fun and friends’ and a positive experience at this stage often encourages young people to continue their journey through Scouting
Here is what one young Beaver has to say about it:
