Beavers are our youngest members of scouting, and meet for an hour per week in school term time. The age range is 6 to 8 years and is open to boys and girls. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with their friends.
We have returned to face 2 face scouting from 15th September 2021
We are looking forward to the next couple of months settling back into scouting and offering the beavers a well-balanced programme of activities, that will allow them to use their skills, grow their skills and develop their teamwork.
Become part of our adventure
The 1st Shelton Lock beavers meet every Wednesday term time at 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
Do you have an interesting occupation or hobby that our Beavers would like to hear about? If so, please talk to our leaders.
Alternatively you might like to volunteer at one of our activity evenings; an extra pair of hands is always welcome.
