Age 6 – 8 years


Our Beavers meet on Thursdays at 6:00pm – 7:00pm during Nottinghamshire school term time, at Wesley Place.

Beaver Scouts make up the second section in the Scouting family. Beavers are members of a Beaver Scout Colony in our Scout Group. Each Colony is made up of several Lodges that have a Lodge leader and an Assistant Lodge leader.

We 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!

All our leaders have undergone a DBS check and they all undertake training in running a Beaver Scout section. You can be certain that your child will be in safe hands!
