Beavers are our youngest members, and at 8th Colchester they meet each week during term time for 75 minutes. 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 8th Colchester we have 2 Beaver Colonies with young members aged between 6 and 8 years old.  There is some flexibility in the age range allowing young people to join from age 5¾, and moving on to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.  Sometimes it is appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.

If you would like your child to join one of our Colonies then please fill out the form on the Join Us page
