Our Red Deer Beaver Colony meets on a Thursday at 18:00 to 19:15

The Red Deer Section Leader is Octavia Goodge (Owl) who has been with 8th Colchester since April 2016 starting out as an Assistant Leader and then being promoted to take over the section in March 2017.

During their meetings the Beavers work towards earning the 6 Challenge badges (Adventure, Teamwork, Outdoors, Skills, World and Personal) and a number of activity badges through games, crafts, outdoor activities and most importantly having lots of FUN!! Once they have earnt all 6 challenges badges and 4 Activity badges, they earn their Bronze Award, which is the highest award within Beavers. This is a huge achievement for the Beavers and they are offered the opportunity 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 Leaders from across the District and County.
