1st Ettingshall Beavers
Beavers are the youngest member of the Scouting family aged between 5 ¾ and 8 years young, forming a group called a Colony which can be split into smaller groups called Lodges. The main leader in charge of the Beaver colony is called Brown Beaver. Beavers meet weekly and participate in different types of activities and work towards a variety of different badges for Beavers to achieve. Achieving these badges involves all sorts like, creating things, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories but most important making new friends and having fun. To achieve certain badges Beaver Scouts maybe required to take part in sleep overs and attend trips with the Colony. Beaver Scout Colony is open to all children of all competence and ethnics.

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

The Beaver Scout Uniform

At 1st Ettingshall all Beavers are required to own a Beaver jumper to be invested and in which they can sew the badges they earn upon. This can be purchased from any outlet that sells official scout uniform. To be invested they also need to purchase a neckerchief which can only be purchased through our scout group. There is also many other optional extras that they can wear such as scout trousers, t-shirts, hats and many more for a full list please look at the scout online shop under the uniform section or the clothing section.

The Beaver Scout Badges

As a Beaver you will have the opportunity to gain any of the badges available to you from the 3 areas which are the activity badges, challenge badges and staged badges. Some of the badges are to be achieved from the work and activities you do at Beavers whilst others are achievable from what work you do outside of Scouting. For some of the badges available to do outside of Scouting please check the resources page to find downloadable packs containing information on how these badges are achievable and then bring along the evidence to your weekly meeting. If you feel you may have completed any badge in or outside of scouting and it has not been recognised please discuss it with a leader. Listed below are all the badges available to gain as a Beaver Scout and where they should be sewn onto your jumper.
