“I promise to do my best; To be kind and helpful; And to love God” – The Beaver Promise

We run two Beaver Colonies at Randwick Scout Group – one on a Wednesday evening and one on a Thursday evening. Each colony is run by a Leader who is supported by parent helpers. Our Leaders plan and organise a varied and exciting programme of termly activities.

As the youngest members of Randwick Scout Group, Beavers are encouraged to participate in creative tasks, explore their local community and join in community activities. Beavers gain badges to recognise their achievements and are also able to camp under the stars with their friends at ‘Beaver Camp’.

May has been busy for us we learnt about other countries to get our International Badge, thanks to Kate for organising this.

On Saturday 11th we took part in Randwick Wap parade along with other sections of the group.

We made a new promise tree which is on the wall in the HQ for everyone to see, and we made felt puppets.

Thursday Beavers Monthly Blog…

We began May with an extended session up at Coaley Peak viewpoint where we ventured into the nearby woods to spend the time constructing traditional wood dens with all Beavers having built enough to shelter from the small amount of rain that fell. The Sunday of this week also saw four Beavers attend the Randwick Wap, taking part in the procession before enjoying the fête afterwards.

The week after we were back at the hut for an evening of pioneering, making catapults in this case. A variety of styles of construction were attempted before the standard ‘triangle build’ proved to be the most successful. These were then tested with nothing other than a shooting contest to see whose catapult could fire a ball the furthest.

For the last week before half-term, we travelled up to Rodborough Common for a Winstones ice cream! This was then followed by a walk across the common and around Rodborough Fort, with some interesting thoughts about its historical past being made.
