Beavers 37th Ormskirk
(St Anne's) Scout Group

The Beavers are the youngest Section of our Scout Group

Beavers are young people aged 6 to 8 who:

- Master new skills and try new things
- Have fun and go on adventures
- Make friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference, on their own doorstops and beyond

They meet every week in a group called a Beaver Colony to hop, skip and jump their way through lots of different games and activities - achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

What do Beavers get up to?

Being a Beaver is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Here are some of the things they get up to:

Exploring the great outdoors

They spend lots of time outside with the Colony. Together, they might build a den, or go on a trip to the seaside, or host a Beaver sleepover indoors or a camp in a tents. And even though they might not be ready to climb Mount Everest just yet, they're guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on their own doorstep, because being a Beaver is all about making the most of what they have, wherever and whoever they are.

Trying new activities and learning new things

Going to Beavers is very different from going to school. Instead of learning from books, they'll figure the world out by exploring, playing and doing.

The most important skills they'll learn at Beavers are the ones that will make them feel super strong standing on their own two feet. We call these character skills. They include things like integrity - which means being honest and doing what they think is right - and initiative - which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked. It's all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping others

Beavers work as a team to help other people, in their local communities and beyond. Whether they're changing the whole world or helping a friend take the leap to try something new on a rainy Thursday night, they always lend a hand.
