The Beaver Colony


Beaver Scout Colony is for boys and girls aged 6-8 yrs. We are the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family, easily recognised by our distinctive turquoise sweatshirts. We enjoy making friends, playing games, earning badges, doing activities, going on visits and helping others.

Code of Conduct

  • Show respect to other people and equipment
  • Stop and listen when adults put their hand up
  • Listen when someone else is talking
  • Everyone to have a chance to have their say
  • No swearing, burping, hitting, kicking etc
  • Show an interest
  • Don't shout out
  • Be kind to everyone
  • Don't sit or climb on stacked chairs
  • Absolutely no bullying of any kind

Lodge Leaders:

  • Help keep their lodge quiet
  • Get Lodge ready for inspection
  • Help out when required

The Colony meets on Friday evenings from 5.00 pm to 6.15 pm unless different timings appear on the calendar below. The year is divided into "terms", broadly following school dates, but again there are often special events outside those "terms". These will be added to the calendar as soon as they are known.


For many outside activities permission forms are needed for safety and protection reasons. These may be a nuisance but they really are essential. They need returning in good time and a deadline is always given. We cannot accept a Scout on a permit-necessary activity unless the permission form has been returned by the due date. Please help us to avoid disappointments!
