Welcome to our Group!
Beaver Scouts are young children aged between six and eight years old. They begin at the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Young children can join Beavers in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cubs,, between eight and eight years six months.
Once kids become Cubs, they can start to participate in alot of fun things. Some of the activities that you can do as a Cub Scout are camping, exploring, hiking and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge to wear on your uniform.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, parks or field trips. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities. Cubs swim up to Scouts at the age of 10½ to 14 years
Our Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their program. "Participation" rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognized for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges.
Scouts take part in a balanced program that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life. We look forward to seeing you in our group and look forward to a great year of fun and excitement.
