What is Beavers all about?


Beavers is our youngest age group, welcoming both boys and girls, aged 6 – 8 years. At Beavers, we are involved in a range of activities, including: games (dodgeball being the all-time favourite, of course!), arts and crafts, campfires, science experiments, team challenges, hikes, sleepovers and so much more!

During Beaver meetings, we work towards many different badges (click here for more information). This is something that all of the Beavers take pride in. They love to feel the sense of achievement when they can add a new badge to their sleeve!

When do we meet?

We currently have two Beaver colonies in our group…

  • Monday Beavers 6pm – 7:15pm
  • Thursday Beavers 6:30pm – 7:45pm

If you are interested in joining, or know someone who might be, then please contact us for more information using the contact details below.

What do we wear?

Beavers wear a turquoise Beaver sweatshirt and, optionally, a turquoise Beaver polo shirt for warmer weather. When invested into the colony, Beavers are awarded with a royal blue neckerchief which signifies that they belong to the 11th Gloucester Scout Group.

During normal Beaver meetings, any trousers suitable for running around in (and potentially getting messy in) are fine, and trainers are preferable.

For parades, such as St George’s Day and Remembrance Day, school style trousers and school type shoes are required.

Uniform can be purchased from the Scout Shop, based at Murray Hall in Tuffley (open Thursday evenings from 7-9pm) or, alternatively, it can be purchased from the School Shop in Gloucester Town. Please note that each shop works independently so items cannot be exchanged between them.
