Welcome to the Thursday Beavers page
Thursday Beavers are one of two Beaver colonies who meet at the Bethesda Church Hall.
Thursday Beavers is currently run by Raven, Nightingale and Tim. We are also lucky enough to have support from young leaders Alice and Johannah. We also rely on a parent rota to support our activities.
In the summer, weather permitting, we meet every three weeks or so at the University of Gloucestershire Park Campus for a range of challenging outdoor activities within the safe confines of the superb campus. Whether working for specific badges or playing favorite games the beavers love being outside! We also try to have special trips away to local outdoor spaces like Pilley Bridge, Crickley Hill and Brizen Field.
Sleepovers are an important part of Beaver Scouts, and we try to offer at least one opportunity a year either indoors or outside under canvas.
We have divided our Beaver colony into three lodges – Eagle Owls, Pheasants and Robins. Each lodge comprises a lodge leader (who tends to be the eldest in the lodge) and approximately 5 other Beavers.
Beavers are awarded ‘pasta points’ for showing initiative, commitment and care for others, each lodge competes for the most pasta points at the end of the term.
Will ‘Raven’ – Will started helping Thursday Beavers since March 2015, and is now running the colony whilst working towards the Leader qualification. Will enjoys creating a varied and challenging programme for the Beavers, seeing them rise to the challenge, complete their badges, make new friends, and build independence.
Tam ‘Nightingale’ – Tam is working towards assistant leader. Tam has lots of experience from her time in Brownies, Red Cross, and more recently pre-school assistant in conjunction with an Early Years teacher training course.
