COVID-19 Update: Under government guidelines in March all Scouting Activities were suspended until further notice.
We are now beginning our plans for a phased restart. Find all the latest updates here.
Meanwhile, we have just launched our 110th Anniversary badge competition that you can complete at home! Find out more details here.
For the first time in 5 years, Beavers from across South West Nottingham journeyed to Conkers Activity Centre for an exciting weekend full of activities and sleep-over (whether much sleeping happened is another question). There was over 200 beavers in one place which is an amazing feat in itself and from the stories they’ve shared, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
There was all sorts of activities to be done including: obstacle courses and learning about the animals that live on site. I think its safe to say that everyone had an a fantastic time and we can’t wait to hear about the next adventures that young people from SW Notts go on.
Beaver Scouts from SW Notts District will be heading for Conkers Discovery Centre in Ashby-de-la-Zouch on 29th February for what promises to be an amazing fun-packed day of exciting outdoor activities, followed by a Sleepover!
Over 150 Beavers (aged 6 and 7) from Stapleford, Bramcote, Chilwell, Attenborough, Beeston, Trowell, Beeston Rylands and Toton – along with 46 adult volunteers – will be taking part in this exciting activity.
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.
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
