Beaver Scouts are the youngest of our members, aged between 6 and 8 years old. During their time in Beavers they will enjoy a lot of fun, safe and adventurous activities.
Who can join Beavers?
Boys and girls aged 6 to 8 years of age
When do Beavers meet?
1st Bedworth has three Beaver Colonies:
- Monday, 6.00pm to 7.00pm – Pathfinder Colony
- Tuesday, 6.00pm to 7.00pm – Woodward Colony
- Thursday, 6.00pm to 7.00pm – Barlow Colony
All of our Beaver Colonies have both boy and girl Beavers.
Occasionally, we also run additional optional activities on other evenings and at weekends.
How much does Beavers cost?
We charge a weekly membership subscription fee of £2.50 per week. This membership fee covers activity insurance, programme materials, badges and also goes towards the heating, lighting and maintenance of the building. It is still payable even if a member does not attend a Colony Night.
Please also be aware that activities outside of the section meeting may be at extra cost.
What do Beavers do?
Beaver Scout activities are a combination of learning, adventure and having fun:
- They learn about how to look after themselves
- Beavers get to know people from their local community
- They find out about life in other countries
- Beavers explore through organised activities
- They care by helping those around them
We also offer occasional activities on other nights and weekends.
All of our meetings are ran by trained and experienced Leaders who are supported by a team of Skills Instructors and helpers. Also, all of our Adult Volunteers are vetted by an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
What do Beavers wear?
As with the other sections of 1st Bedworth, Beavers wear a uniform:
- A smart turquoise sweatshirt
- Royal blue neckerchief
The above items are worn to all colony meetings and activities together with a suitable pair of trousers, jogging bottoms or shorts, and suitable footwear.
On formal occasions Beaver are also expected to wear:
- Black, navy blue or dark grey trousers or shorts
- Black, navy blue, or dark grey socks
- Black boots or shoes
The Beaver Sweatshirt is available from us and costs £14. The necka’ is free and is presented when the new Beaver is invested. Most Beavers wear their school trousers and shoes with their uniform on formal occasions.
