Kidderminster & District 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.

Scouting in Kidderminster is welcoming more and more young people every year, and the reasons for this aren’t difficult to understand! It’s all about friendship, fun and most importantly, everyday adventure for our youngsters.

Scouting offers more than 200 different activities, and more people do adventurous activities in Scouts than with any other organisation. In Kidderminster District, we offer young people, both boys and girls, the opportunity to discover their potential through challenges and positive experiences that will enrich their lives.

As Bear Grylls, the Chief Scout, says, ‘Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. That’s what I love about Scouting, it’s about doing great things, loving and enjoying the great adventures, and helping others to do the same’.

There are 12 Scout Groups in Kidderminster and the surrounding area, providing age appropriate activities and challenges to boys and girls aged 6 to 14, as well as 4 Explorer Scout Units for young adults over 14, all run by teams of dedicated adult leaders who are vetted and trained to the Scout Association’s high standards.

Interested or want to find out more? If you’re a young person aged 6 – 25, or a parent, go to the JOIN page or phone our local Membership Enquiries line on 01562 829577 or if you would like to become a volunteer please visit the Adult Volunteer page.
