Witham Beaver Colony – A Brilliant New Adventure

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.

Beaver Scouts and Camping

We encourage our Beavers to go camping! 

It enables them to experience the fun and challenge of camping under canvas for one night – the maximum allowed in the Beaver Scout section. It prepares them for longer camps of 2 or more nights when they move into the Cub Scout section.

It gives them an opportunity to get to know other Beavers in a relaxed, friendly and, above all, safe environment, with leaders who are specifically trained to ensure their safety and well-being whilst they are away from home. Read More
