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.
At this moment in time, the Beavers are not meeting Face 2 Face.
The young people are still able to earn badges and do activities as we (the leaders) are providing them with the option of activities packages.
We will update this section with information when it changes.

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.
