What is Beaver Scouting?
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family and is for girls and boys aged six to eight years old. Beavers meet in a group called a Colony, and are then placed in smaller groups called Lodges. Each Lodge has a Lodge Leader who is usually an older or more experienced Beaver. Beavers wear a turquoise jumper and when
they get invested they will wear the red, white and grey scarf that show they are a member of the 18 th Truro Scout family.
18 th Truro (St George’s) is a Sea Scout group and the Beaver Scoutsare a swashbuckling, motley crew of adventurers. We love to have fun inside and out whilst making friends and trying new things.Everyone is welcome to join our adventures. Being part of a team, welcoming others and being inclusive is a fundamental part of
Scouting. Our recent activities include taking part in a Damboree (Camp), Stand Up Paddle-boarding, Kayaking, Camping with the Cubs, making bug houses, tracking games, visiting the Fire Station, becoming digital spies, visiting the Beavers at Woodland Valley farm and taking part in the annual County Beaver Challenge.
Beavers learn new skills, are creative, play games, meet new people, visit new places and learn about their communities. Beavers also enjoy sleepovers and camping opportunities throughout the year, most recently joining with Scouts and Guides around the world to take part in Camp at Home. To recognise their experiences Beavers
earn badges that they wear on their uniform and they may start a badge blanket ready for our next campfire. Visit www.scouts.org.uk to find out more about Beavers and what they do.
