Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family and is open to boys and girls aged 6 to 8 years old. 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.
There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Beaver Scout Section. Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world. In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Colony, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.
We have two Beaver Colonies within the 1st Newent Scout Group. Apache Colony meet on a Tuesday night and Cherokee Colony meet on a Thursday night.
