Our Beaver Scout Colony take Girls and Boys from the age of 6 - 8.   The Beavers meet on Thursday nights, 6pm - 7.30pm.  Weekly Subs are £2.  Their uniform is a turquoise sweatshirt, navy blue trousers and our Group Kneckerchief.


What’s the best thing about Beaver Scouts?  Activities, trips and making friends are all part of what makes it so much fun for girls and boys. As well as earning activity badges, many Beavers Scouts get to go on camps and sleepovers, often for the first time. Beaver Scouts like:


Being creative - making things and singing

Playing games

Going on visits and investigating nature

Learning about themselves

Getting to know other people

Discovering the worlds of science, nature and technology

Exploring the natural and manmade world

Caring – responding to the needs of others, the local and international community


This month is Group camp where all sections join together for a weekend camp.  In April the Beavers joined the other members of the Group for an Easter Egg Hunt and wide game on Robinswood Hill, and they also took part in Gloucester Districts St. Georges Day Parade.


In 2018 we visited Blaise Castle and did orienteering in the grounds.  We joined the rest of the sections for the weekend at Group Camp and we had a sleepover at Halloween.  We had a visit from Gloucestershire Wildlife to do a Pollinator workshop, we made seed bombs to help grow more wildflowers.  The explorers ran a session for us so we could complete our Emergency Aid Badge.  We received letters from Kea Scouts in New Zealand.  We completed our Book Readers Badge, a new badge for the Beaver Section.  We worked towards and completed lots of different badges, the Teamwork Challenge and Outdoor Challenge requiring quite a lot of different tasks to complete.  7 Beavers achieved the Chief Scout Bronze Award, the highest award you can achieve in Beavers.  We worked towards 9 different activity badges, 6 different Challenge badges and 6 different staged badges.  We had 9 new Beavers invested and 8 Beavers moved on the Cubs.

You can find out about the badges that the Beavers can earn on the National Scout Website, you can find the link for this on our Useful Links page.  Below is a diagram of the position of badges and awards for Beaver Scouts.
