Bedfordshire Scouts

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Joining

Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


Structure

A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

Bedfordshire Scouts Census 2022
28/04/2022 By David Moult

With the Scout HQ Census details released, it's amazing to see the biggest growth in 80 years! We are constantly proud of our volunteers across the County who work tirelessly to provide our young people with #SkillsForLife

With a great return to Scouting from our young people, we need to continue to recruit more awesome people to keep making a significant impact to ourselves and our local communities.

Bedfordshire has also released our Census data, which aligns similarly to the national output. It shows a growth in youth attending Scouting in all of our Districts by over 12% which ultimately means we need to continue to recruit to keep up with the understandable demand of what Scouting can offer. There are over 1,100 young people missing out or on waiting lists.

Our County Commissioner, Martin Wesley said this about our Census results: 

"Thanks to the amazing efforts of existing volunteers, Scouting kept going throughout the lockdown. Our youth members are now rushing back to enjoy face-to-face Scouting. And they are bringing their friends with them!

Sixteen Scout Groups in Bedfordshire already are larger in size than they were before the pandemic hit. All these extra young people need extra adults to keep them safe while giving them Skills for Life. Please come and join the fun."
