Beavers

Our Beaver Scout Colony take young people from the age of 6 – 8.   The Beavers meet on Thursday nights, Monthly Subs are £12.50, which are to be paid monthly. 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

If you are interested in joining our Beaver Scout Colony, please email the Beaver Leader on [email protected] for more information.

In 2023 the Beavers as usual enjoyed a variety of activities, some of these included a trip to Slimbridge with the Squirrels, Group camp at Trac, orienteering around Gloucester Docks, Tent pitching, Kayaking, Beatrix Potter Trail around Gloucester, Experiments and earned lots of badges.

You can find out about the badges that the Beavers can earn on the national Scout website. Below is a diagram of the position of badges and awards for Beaver Scouts.
