10th Warrington Beaver Colony
What are Beaver Scouts?
The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group; they meet up for an hour per week. Beaver Scouts are young people (boys and girls) aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is some flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.
When do our Beaver sessions run?
Our Beaver Colony meets during school term-time every Wednesday between 6 pm and 7 pm, at our Scout Hut, on Highfield Avenue. Our Beaver Colony is led by one of our most experienced leaders, Steve Pennington, and assisted by his Assistant Beaver Leader, Mikki Wotham.
We would be delighted to welcome your child to our group, to start their fantastic Scouting adventure with us. Please click on the “Join now” button to join our fabulous group.

Activities and Achievements
During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. There are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
The Beaver Scout Promise, Law, and Motto
There are a number of variations of the Beaver Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs, attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. It is a way to introduce the Scouting values in all sections.
The Beaver Scout Law: There is no formal Beaver Scout Law. The concepts expressed in the Scout Law are to be presented to Beaver Scouts through games, storytelling, and other informal activities.
The Beaver Scout Motto: Be prepared
Beaver Scout Uniform and Flag
Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a Necker) and a coloured woggle which identifies their Lodge (White, Red, blue. Green). The Royal Blue Necker is provided by the 10th Warrington Beaver Scout Colony.
