Beavers are boys and girls aged 6 to 8 who:

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, on their own doorstops and beyond

Every week, Beavers gather in groups called Colonies to hop, skip and jump their way through lots of different games and activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

Going to Beavers is very different from going to school. Instead of learning from books, you’ll figure the world out by exploring, playing and doing.  

The most important skills you’ll learn at Beavers are the ones that will make you feel super strong standing on your own two feet. We call these character skills. They include things like integrity – which means being honest and doing what you think is right – and initiative – which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked. It’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Here is some info about Uniform and where to place all the badges that your Beaver will soon be earning.

At 1st Ferring the Beaver Colony meets at 5.45 to 7.15pm on a Thursday Night and this is what we have on our program.

There is much more detail about what’s on and where to meet if you log onto the Parent Portal of Online Scout Manager using this link; OSM
