Beavers

The Beaver Scouts section is the first section in the 7th Woking Scout Group for young people usually aged between six and eight years old.

Here the first steps in learning scouting skills start in a fun way.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others.

The 7th Woking Beaver Scouts meet once a week, currently on Thursdays during term time. The Colony has a particularly active programme including learning about Health & Fitness, Space and Cooking. Visits the Beavers have been on include Pets @ Home, The Fire Station, Woking Mosque and each Christmas we go Carol Singing at a local Care Home. During the Summer months they enjoy Den Building, Walks and other Outdoor Activities.

Beaver Scouts also get the opportunity to meet other Beaver Scouts at District and County events such as Science Day, and District and County Fun Days. In addition, they take part with the Cub and Scout sections in Scouts Own, Remembrance Day and St. George Day Parades.

Beaver Scouts can earn badges for activities that they take part in, and can also earn badges for completing challenges that build towards the highest award in Beaver Scouting: the Chief Scout's Bronze Award.

Beaver Scouts move up to Cub Scouts, at the age of eight.
