Beaver Scouts is the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.
Children join a Beaver Scout Colony for many reasons. It might be they have heard great things from their friends about all the things your Colony gets up to every week.
Bristol 227th Beavers
Beavers is for girls as well as boys, aged between 6 and 8.
We meet on Wednesdays, from 6.15 – 7.30pm. There is a Beaver Scout Leader in charge with at least one Assistant Beaver Scout Leader.
There are lots of badges for Beavers to work on. The Leaders plan the programme and guide the children in working towards badges from the time a child joins the Colony. More detail on the badges can be found here.
For badge positioning, please see the downloadable Badge Positioning document, on the Downloads page.
Beavers have fun and adventure. As well as meeting each week at our Scout HQ, we will sometimes go somewhere different for special Colony activities. In addition we take part in church parades and other activities such as archery, grass tobogganing as well as meeting up with other Beaver Colonies in our District or at District Events.
Subs are currently £30 per term (payable 3 terms per year at the beginning of each term). On occasion, some events may also incur an additional charge.
Cheques for subs and trips should be made out to ‘227th Bristol Beavers’. This subscription covers each member's contribution to the County and District as well as contributing towards the costs of badges, activities and the upkeep of 227th HQ – heating, lighting, repairs, etc.
