Although this is the youngest section within scouting, for boys & girls aged between 6 & 8 years old, the teaching of the scouting history and ceremonies starts here. The young people enjoy learning and experiencing outdoor activities such as camping & hiking.
Beavers enjoy working through structured badge work as well as learning social skills whilst playing and generally just having fun.
What Have We Been Up To?
In November our Beavers gained the new Disability Awareness Activity Badge, for this they learnt about how life is for people with disabilities and some of the things that help make their lives better. The Beavers also made planets and solar systems as well as doing things with glow sticks for the Space Activity Badge.
During December they were busy making a selection of Christmas craft, that included sock snowmen and clay decorations for their Christmas trees before the Beavers finished the year off with a Christmas Party. The Beavers also helped the Group raise a lot of money packing bags at the local Tesco Store.
January started with our Beavers having a games night as part of their Friendship Activity Badge, before making collages and Lego models as for the Imagination Activity Badge. The Beavers then made torches as they started their Experiment Activity Badge.
