Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. 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. The Beaver Colony is made up of Beaver Scouts aged between 6 - 8. We holds a weekly meeting at the Scout Hut in Station Road, Hampton, every Wednesday from 6pm-7.15pm, with some games nights during school holidays and half-term weeks. Our Beaver Colony Leader is Jeff Smith.

Beavers activities
Activities in the Hut consist of instruction mainly in land-based Scouting and other skills, but with a water-based slant on some, working towards obtaining badges as listed in our badge information section, games, and indoor sports, and learning the Beaver Scout Promise.
Out of the Hut, there are occasional outings to other sites to enhance the learning and fun. In Summer, Beavers can attend Family Boating Days, trying out canoeing, rowing, and generally messing about in boats.  Parents must attend if they would like their child to go on the water.

At the annual week long Summer Camp, although Scouts and Cubs will stay overnight, Beavers are welcome to attend daytime sessions, using skills learnt at weekly meetings. Announcements regarding Summer Camp are made well in advance.  The Summer Camp usually takes place for one week in the second half of August.

Beaver badges
Beaver badge information can be found in our badges information section. The Beaver Colony is open to children aged from 6 to 8 and a half years (inclusive). On reaching 8 years, Beavers can move up (swim upstream) to the Cub Scout Pack.
