Beavers

The 12th Eastleigh Scout Group has two Beaver Colonies, one meets on Tuesdays and Echo Colony meets on Wednesdays in the evening for fun activities, games and visits.

Parents should check the current programme for details of meetings being held away from the hall, changes in start and finish times and special events.  For the current programme, please visit the page for the relevant Beaver Colony.

Basics

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

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 Beaver Scouts 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.

The Beaver Scout Promise

I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.

The Beaver Scout Motto

Be prepared

Uniform

Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a maroon woggle or one of another colour which identifies their Lodge or team.  The uniform can be purchased from our Scout Shop which is at the 14th Eastleigh Scout HQ, Allbrook Hill, Eastleigh, SO50 4LY.  Follow this link for more information. 

Flag

The Beaver Scout flag is light blue, bearing the Scout symbol and the Scout Motto.
