“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.

After half term we returned to an evening of different food types. We looked at what a balanced diet is and made posters, sampled chocolate and even made fruit smoothies!
The week after we took to elastic bands and bamboo sticks to construct our very own catapults! A variety of techniques were tried but all resorted to a tripod eventually.
Our treat of the month was a trip to Cranham Scout Centre to experience caving, climbing and grass sledging! All enjoyed, even the leaders with stopping grass sledges going off the end of the hill!
To end June, we had a disability talk from one of our parents, which also involved trying out a wheelchair and attempting to throw balls into hoops whilst blindfolded. Many thanks to Tom for the evening.
