beavers lifeboatsBeavers meet in ‘Colonies’ – clubs that are very different from school although learning is interspersed amongst the fun!

Beavers play lots of games and will have opportunities to go on fun activity days and outings (with activities such as archery, canoeing and wall-climbing).

They also learn about camp cooking and basic scouting skills. The District also arranges competitions, outings and challenge events which they will invite Beavers to join in with.

Subs

Scouting is a charity and all our leaders and helpers are unpaid volunteers. However, we do need to charge subscriptions to cover the cost of running the group but we keep these as low as we possibly can. Details of current rates can be found here.
