Welcome to Beavers, we’re sure you’re going to have a great time! You will be in Beavers from when you join (usually when you are 6) until you are 8, when you will move to Cub scouts. Beavers will be divided into small groups, called lodges, where you get to learn about how a team works. Everyone has something they are good at, so when you get a group of boys and girls together who are good at lots of different things you will learn that working in a group is a great way to get things done.
Beavers learn lots of things about nature, about being away from home with friends, about building things from wood and rope. Beavers do some art, play lots of games, learn some cool things about science, learn how to safe around fire and outdoors, cook and find things on a map. You will also learn more about the community you live in and we visit some great places.
Some activities Beavers participated in last year include:
- Art nights
- minibeast safaris (insect hunting)
- tie dying

- Science experiments
