Beaver News Lodges Beaver Badge Positions

Welcome to Beaver Scouts.

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section. They range from 6 to 8 years of age. We start the adventure and the emphasis is maximum fun. Don’t let our cute factor get you as we can be adventurous and daring as any other scouts. While we are having fun we still get to play with others so that we know how to get along with other people.

The Beaver Scouts are organised into four  small groups called Lodges – red, blue, green and white. There is normally around 5 people in each lodge. The lodges are collected together in what we call a Colony. We also take on tasks so that we find out about responsibility. We learn lots of new skills by doing them but the most important thing is that we do it with other people, especially our friends

Beaver Scouts are given a say in what is happening in the programme. This is done through review games and at Lodge gatherings (called Log Chews). Log Chew’s should be led by the Scouter but they exist so as to get the opinions of the Beaver Scouts and to take account of these opinions when making decisions for the future.

Activities in the past have included: a trip to the panto or cinema, a Halloween day in  Curraghhcase, a trip to the fire station, a hike in Cratloe Woods, a trip to fota Island for National Animal Awareness Day and a visit to Santa’s Workshop in Killcully in Cork. In 2011 we had our first ever Beaver Camp. The programme for the 2010/2011 scout year will focus on more “scouting” activities than previous years such as Camping Skills, Hiking, Cooking and much more more

We have 21 beavers in our coloney and 5 scouters
