|Sections Beavers Main Join Uniform Badges Handbook|
Beavers are the youngest section of our Scout Group ~ the Beaver Colony, these are Boys and girls usually aged between 6 to 8 years of age. Boys and girls can join the Beavers in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday on a trial basis.
Beavers within the Beaver Colony are placed into a Lodge and wear a woggle of the colour of their Lodge; a Lodge comprises usually six Beavers, the senior one of these being the Lodge Leader wears two white strips around the arm on their jumper, and a Lodge Seconder who wears a single white strip around the arm of their jumper. The Lodge Leader and Lodge Seconder supervise their Lodge and help the other Beavers within the Lodge with Beaver work and in Beaver games to encourage a friendly little team.
Beavers are easily recognised by their distinctive and very smart uniform, comprising a light grey jumper, a sky-blue corded light grey cap, grey shorts, navy blue long socks with two emerald green rings around the sock downturns supported by emerald green garter flashes. They also wear their Scout Group colour neckerchief with a coloured woggle denoting their Lodge. The uniform is purchased from the Scout Group who maintains a good stock of all Sections’ uniforms.
Beavers meet usually once a weekon Tuesday evening from 5.00pm to 6.00pm . They are required to attend Church Parades held once a month and support the Beaver Colony and Scout Group in various other activities from time to time of which they will be notified.
Beavers enjoy making new friends from the catchment area of the scout group not just school friends, passing beaver tests and gaining many badges, playing games, going on visits and helping others, all within our very friendly family orientated scout group.
Hopefully all Beavers will gain their top award ‘THE SWIMMING UP BADGE’ before their 8th. Birthday so that they are ready to progress and become a Wolf Cub in our Wolf Cub Pack at the age of 8 years old.
