Beavers

“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’.

We have had a busy June. It started by investing 5 new Beavers, and made secret agent pin wheels. Sunday 9th was the AGM and hike which a couple of our Beavers took part in. On the 12th we went to Cranham to do the Challenge Course a great time was had by all, they all went home tired and wet.

They following week we did bird bingo and talked about the birds they see in the garden. On 21st – 22nd we arranged a nights away and 12 Randwick Beavers and 2 from Rodborough took part. We had a theme on African explorers, they made masks, binoculars and plate stands, played games learnt knots we were very lucky with the weather.  Beavers got their nights away and camp craft badges.  Many thanks to Mary Jones, Haggis, Christine and Kate.

During the last week we did junk modelling.

June started with an extended evening at Woodchester Park, completing the two-and-a-half-mile track around the park! The week after we returned to the hut to create some Fathers’ Day crafts. We all painted a mug with whatever imagery our dads would like.

For our next meeting we headed to Pets at Home. We spent the evening petting a rabbit, guinea pig and feeding the fish before being given activity booklets to complete which will complete our Animal Friend badge once done.

For our last week of June, we spent our meeting at Waitrose, Stroud where we took part in a whole store tour covering healthy eating and balanced diets, environmental considerations in the food industry as well as the logistics of how goods make it from wherever it originates to home (at the right temperature)!
