Beaver Scouts are the youngest members of the Scout Movement. They are full members of the Group and Movement – they make a promise, attend regular meetings, pay subscriptions, and wear a uniform. Our meetings are planned to cover a full range of activities: games (to encourage listening, thinking and co-operative skills), craft, singing, drama, home and road safety, local knowledge, nature and ‘good turns’.
The Beavers’ motto is:
Fun and Friends
The Beavers’ promise is:
to do my best
to be kind and helpful
and to love God.
1st Hinchley Wood Beavers progress automatically through to Cubs, and have priority for admission. Our Beaver colony is very active. We usually have 25 Beavers (the maximum allowed) and a waiting list. Our Beaver leaders are known as Otter and Fox. We have weekly meetings in term time and sometimes hold extra ones, such as day trips, at half-term.
The Scout groups in the immediate area come together to form Esher District, and as a Beaver Colony we take part in District events: Christmas party, Beaver Fun Day and District Cross-country races.
As members of 1st Hinchley Wood Scout Group, Beavers take part in Church parades and Group camp.
