Our Green Trees Beaver Colony meets on Wednesdays at 17:00 - 18:15.


The Green Trees Section Leader; Badger is Sam Moore who has been with 8th Colchester since April 2016 starting out as an Assistant Leader with our Red Deer Colony, until Green Trees opened in January 2017. Joining Sam at Green Trees Beaver Colony are 2 Assistant Leaders Owl and Wolf.


Each week at our meetings the children have the opportunity to take home Woody or Marshall our friendly beaver mascots, on their return the children tell us of the adventures they have had during the week, we also ask for the children to bring in pictures or drawings of their time together for ‘Woody & Marshall's great adventures’ scrap book.


During our meetings the Children work towards earning Badges through Playing games, crafts, outdoor activities and most importantly having lots of FUN!!

The Beavers work towards earning the 6 Challenge badges (Adventure, Teamwork, Outdoors, Skills, World and Personal) during their time with us which then along with 4 Activity badges earn them their Bronze Award. This is a huge achievement for the Beavers where they get the chance to attend an awards ceremony which takes place once a year where all the young people from all sections receive a certificate in front of an audience of Parents and members of Colchester North District.
