‘The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather.’

The first step your child may take into the Scouting movement will be to join the Beavers. The Beavers section was started in 1986 to cater for the 6 – 8½ age group.

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.

There are a number of Beaver Scout colonies in Tame Valley, all guarenteed to give your child some amazing memories, so what are you waiting for? Join the adventure today!
