Beavers

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.

We are proud to have two thriving Beaver colonies at 1st St. Sebastians. The Beavers themselves choose the name of their individual colonies:

Structure

A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

Promise

After attending meetings for a few weeks, members will make their promise as part of an investiture ceremony.

Many members also renew their promise on an annual basis, traditionally at a St. Georges Day service, meeting or outdoor activity.

In 2014 additional alternative versions to the promise were made available to Scout Groups in order to welcome even more young people to Scouting. The core promise, which refers to a ‘Duty to God’, remains intact and Scouting remains fully committed as a Movement that explores faith and religion as a core element of its programme.

If you would like your child to make a specific promise, please discuss it with the leader.
