About Beavers

 

Welcome to the Bethesda Beavers

‘The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather.’

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members (6 – 8).  They 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.

Structure

There are two Beaver colonies at Bethesda – Monday Beavers and Thursday Beavers.

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

Joining

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