“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’.
Wednesday Beavers Monthly Blog…
Weds Beavers have been busy this month with the first evening back we did team games making good use of the nice weather.
The following week we had 6 new Beavers start and we did leaf painting. The Beavers settled in well.
The next week we talked about food that is good for you and those that are not then they made sandwiches and did a worksheet on safety in the kitchen.
Last week we talked about the weather and how it affects us. They made planes and flew them. They also took weather maps home to make a note of the weather in 3 of the places on the map for 2 weeks, then they need to bring them back to us and we will discuss further.
THURSDAY BEAVERS MONTHLY BLOG…
We started the new term with a games evening to introduce our new Beavers and get everyone to know each other.
The week after we had an evening of fire lighting and marshmallow toasting, learning the basics of fire construction and how to toast a marshmallow to perfection – although this was achieved through trial and error!
For our third week of the term, we ventured up to Woodchester Park to spend the time completing a 3-mile hike around the grounds, also having a go on the various adventure activities along the path we followed.
On our final meeting in September, we spent the evening at the hut designing machines and explaining what their purpose was and having discussions about the importance of sleep alongside some games.
