Beaver Scouts (6-8)
Open to boys and girls aged between 6 and 8 years old, Beaver Scouts are the youngest members of the scouting family.
Our Beavers colony meets on Monday evenings during school terms, from 6.00pm to 7.15pm. Our base is the church hall at All Saints Weston Green (the white church by the pond), but in the summer you will often spot us outside on the commons, having adventures and learning new skills. The Beaver colony also frequently goes on local trips to learn new things and try new activities. Beavers get the chance to join in parades on special days, to participate in camps and spend their first nights away.
You can find out all about what it is like to be a Beaver at the Scouts website.
Like all Scouts sections, Beavers is run by a team of trained volunteers. Our leader is Wilbur (Nicola Chetwynd-Stapylton) and she is assisted by Otter (Matthew Paget), Fox (Felix Jackson), Puffin (Jennifer Williams), Badger (Neil Beardmore) and Kingfisher (Mary Redington). Heron (Christina Chamberlain) handles the waiting list and new joiners. We expect parents to help at one evening every few weeks and to participate in other activities, including our scout group’s only fund-raising event, the annual Christmas tree collection service.
There is usually a substantial waiting list to join 1st Weston Green Beavers, which you can join by clicking here. Preference will be given to children whose parents volunteer to help our Scout Group by becoming a section assistant, helping once a week, including some weekend events. If you can help us as an adult volunteer, let us know by filling out the form on our Adult Volunteers page.
