In the last couple of weeks, a new Beaver Colony was opened at 1st Chilwell and Attenborough Scout Group. They’ve had two meetings so far and they have already begun learning key scouting skills such as lighting fires and eating marshmallows. We can’t wait to see what other fantastic activities the leaders have got lined up for the future.
Beavers is the scouting section for 6-8 year olds. The aim is to teach the young people the basics of scouting through fun and games so that they are active and learning at the same time. There’s the opportunity to earn a wide variety of badges and undertake a huge assortment of events on offer from the Group and District.
