“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’.

During the Easter holiday Wednesday Beavers joined up with Thursday Beavers and did a sleepover at Go Bananas. We had 15 from Weds go and a good time was had by all not a lot of sleep was had by all, but all but 2 did have some sleep. Many thanks to Kelly who organised this.
Our 1st Weds back we welcomed 2 new Beavers and we were working towards our navigator badge, looking at maps and pin pointing places on them.
Last week we went to Stratford Park and did a walk with things to find, then ended up at the play area to burn off a bit of stream.
THURSDAY BEAVERS MONTHLY BLOG…
Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented cold weather, our first meeting of March had to be cancelled. However, we soon picked up the programme the following week working towards our Air Activities stage 1+2 badges, learning about different types of aircraft as well as how they fly – which involved making paper planes.
The week after, we finished up the last elements of our air activities badges, meaning that most Beavers now have both stage 1+2! We then came up with a list of things we’d like to find out about scouting in Australia, which has been posted to our twin group in Melbourne!
The following week we headed to WWT Slimbridge for an evening feeding the birds their evening meal, making frog puppets to take home and even handling reptiles!
For the last week of term, we held an Easter Egg hunt around the hall, before becoming more adventurous and going further afield into Finns Way – collecting eggs that provided a clue to the next which got us back to the overall stash of various chocolates!
