Beavers offers 6-8 year-olds the opportunity to explore the world through a packed programme of creative activities, with the focus on having fun. They develop teamwork and social skills, and earn badges for their achievements.
Our Beaver colony meets 4.30-5.45pm on Tuesday evenings during school term times.
We encourage all parents to take part in at least one session each term. As well as enabling us to run better activities, this is a great opportunity to see what your little ones get up to, and it’s a lot of fun.
Our Beaver colony is currently at full capacity, but you’re welcome to add your child to our waiting list and we’ll get back in touch when a space becomes available.
Beavers wear a blue Beaver sweatshirt and navy blue trousers, with dark shoes. In summer, for informal events, it is fine to wear a blue Beavers T-shirt and navy shorts. (Hint: for young Beavers especially, it is worth getting as large a jumper as sensible – with luck it will last them their whole time at Beavers and will save you from having to transfer all the badges onto a new one half way through).
Jumpers, t-shirts, trousers, and shorts are available from Scout shops in Guildford or Farnham, or online here. We will provide their badges and black/red scarf. This diagram shows where to sew each of the badges.
For outdoor or special activities, your leader will advise the most appropriate clothing for the conditions. Finally, please don’t forget to ensure your child’s name is in every item of clothing!
Our adult helpers get just as much fun from bringing their skills and enthusiasm to the group – giving young people unique opportunities, supporting the local community and meeting like-minded people. There are varied and exciting leadership and committee roles to suit all levels of involvement and experience.
