Beavers are our youngest members (aged 6 to 8), and generally meet for an hour per week.
They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends. Take a look at a little video of what they get up to.
The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾ and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.
We have two Beaver colonies which are very popular that meet on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. They meet at Farnsfield Village Centre, New Hill, Farnsfield, Newark, Nottinghamshire. NG22 8JN.
