“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…
We started the month making wish dolls out of clothes pegs, cocktail sticks and wool, the children were told to make a wish to help people in other countries. This is working towards their Global badge.
The following week we remade our promise tree and started making poppies.
We carried on making poppies for the last week, for the wreath and to wear at Remembrance Sunday.
THURSDAY BEAVERS MONTHLY BLOG…
We began October with an evening spent out in the local area on a night hike – although the sun decided to stay up a bit longer making it more of a rural evening walk with a visit to the park!
The following week we returned to the hut for a problem-solving evening, completing various challenges including; trying to get as much water as possible down a pipe with holes, folding a piece of paper whilst standing on it and moving a cup using only an elastic band suspended from 4 lengths of string. We also invested our new members.
Our final meeting of the term entailed making poppies for the remembrance wreath ahead of Remembrance Sunday. We also make promise hands, setting promises to ourselves which ranged from helping a friend to going to bed on time.
