Leagrave Beaver Scout Colony

#SkillforLife

Falkes District Scouts, Bedfordshire

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.

Beaver/Cub Camp May 2018
29/05/2018 By David Faraday

reWell! they did it! As well as a camp for the Beavers and Cubs this was a camp to allow Emma Denyer and Michele McBarron to get their Scouts Nights Away permit and they passed according to an inside source!!

Anyway, that done, it was on to the camp.

What an amazing weekend, arrived Friday morning in overcast weather, moved onto sunshine Friday afternoon, Tents set up for cubs, campsite checked for inspection, beaver hall set up then we await all the young people to arrive.
Oh and I forgot, the 7 scouts, 8 young leaders and 11 leaders that were also to attend on top of the 28 young people.
 
Saturday morning was misty and overcast but turned into a glorious day. Following a lovely breakfast, the Beavers and Cubs were shown how to make a swing with pioneering poles, ropes and knots. Then it was firelighting and backwoods cooking, which was loved by all and a new experience for the Beavers.

A light lunch then onto pedal karts and archery where a very hot afternoon led to plenty of shaded sunbathing and drinks galore.

With so much sun it was therefore very fortunate that someone had brought along a large plastic sheet, a hose reel and some soapy liquid. What followed was a lot of very happy young people splashing about in cold water.

​Tea was over and a wide game along with a camp fire sing-a-long was the order of the night along with roasted Marshmallows of course!

But what was to follow that night was unexpected, about 2 am the skies went black then white with lightening strikes and a downpour so heavy it washed the mud around  the hall door into the hall....... But guess what the beavers and cubs (camping) slept through the whole lot.........

After cleaning up Sunday morning after breakfast was onto shooting for the beavers whilst the cubs did a treasure hunt. A swap around for the groups and lunchtime saw the camp break up, tents packed and an awards ceremony for best at camp carried out before parents arrived and the weekend was over
