Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.
Beavers Scouts are for 6 to 8 – year old boys and girls and will be their first introduction to the world of Scouting. Our objective is to give them a constructive and fun environment in which to build confidence in meeting a wide range of people from many aspects of Scouting to prepare them so that they will be keen to take the next steps as they become old enough.
We have three Beaver Colonies : Bere Wood, Creech Woods and Hundred Acre Wood.
If you would like your child to join one of the Beaver Colonies, please click here: https://www.onlinescoutmanager.co.uk/waiting-list/1st-denmead-waiting/e8584c60-b239-48fc-8a8d-79d874d8a498/apply

When do the Beavers meet?
2 Colonies meet weekly on a Thursday evening at the Scout HQ. Bere Forest Colony meet from 17:15 – 18:15 and Creech Woods from 18:30 – 19:30. Hundred Acre Wood Colony meets on a Saturday morning from 9.00 – 10.00am.
They run the same programme each week, so it doesn’t matter which Colony your child attends.
New beavers usually visit for 4 – 6 weeks before being invested, at which time they will need a uniform and will make the Beaver Promise.
The Beaver Scout Promise
I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.
There are alternative promises for children of different faiths or no faith.
