About Beaver Scouts

 

The Beavers section is for children aged 6 - 8. 

This is the first and youngest section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next section, Cub Scouts, between 8 and 8 years, 6 months. 

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They meet together once a week on Monday evenings at 6.15pm, where they do all of the things below:

  • Help others 

  • Play games 

  • Explore their world 

  • Undertake prayer and worship 

  • Listen to stories 

  • Follow themes 

  • Go on visits 

  • Make things 

  • Meet new people 

  • Act, sing and make music 

  • Chat 

  • Go outdoors 

The 43rd Beaver Colony is one of the most successful in the Woodford area with a full and packed programmes including visits from a snake to a trip to the local fire station and chip shop! (not at the same time of course).

Each term costs £30

Joining Beavers

The group is limited to children who are practising Catholics from local parishes.

A registration form is available in the documents section of the Group website www.43rdefs.co.uk, this must be filled in and returned to the address on the form, or printed copies can be obtained from the Parish Office. Receipt of all registrations will be confirmed and names added to the waiting list.

The 43rd is a hugely popular group with a lengthy waiting list, to give your child the best chance possible it is advisable to get them on the waiting list as soon as possible. In this respect the Group is similar to many of the popular primary schools of the area. Most of the children who join Beavers at age 6 stay with the group through the sections, this severely limits the number of places open for the Cubs section at age 8, and the Scout section at age 10.5, as we guarantee all members a place in the next section.

The 43rd is a very popular Group and each Section has a limit on the number of children it can accept, this is due to the number of leaders and physical room / health and safety.
