South Berkshire District Scouts

#SkillsForLife

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Joining

Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


Structure

A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

21/10/2017 By Kirsty Aldridge

We have held our district JOTI / JOTA event at 1st Sandhurst HQ.

We had radio stations contacting people as far afield as Canada, Croatia. Internet chat talking to people from over 30 different countries.

We had over 60 scouts from 3 troops on the Friday night.

They cracked codes in morse code, enigma on pringles, sempahore, using walkie talkie radios, working as a team to 'diffuse the bomb', making electronic radio and morse code circuits and generally having a lot of fun. one member of each troop was rewarded for their efforts with a small prize.

Saturday saw two drop in sessions attended by over 16 young people from beavers to explorer from 6 different groups to cover their digital citizen stage 1 and 2 and for some their communications badges.

Thanks very much to Andy and Oliver who laid on the equipment and infrastructure to make this event possible. Here's to next year...
