Beavers

We run two Beaver Colonies – one in Oxted and one in Hurst Green.

Demand for places is very heavy and greater than the capacity we have.  The only way you can guarantee that your youngster will get in, is to actively support the running of the Scout Group by becoming a uniformed Scouter or joining of Executive Committee that operates behind the scenes and manages finances, insurances, fund-raising etc or other forms of substantive support.

Parental willingness to undergo a DBS check, and being willing and able to assist with meetings on an ad hoc or rota basis around once per term is expected as a minimum

Beaver Scouts belong to the first and youngest section in the scouting family. The “core age range” of the Beaver Scout Colony is from 6 years to 8 years. A young person may join at 5¾ years and remain until 8½ years.

Beaver Colonies are friendly and active places for your youngster to join – we get up to all sorts of things, including day visits, sleepovers, arts and crafts, exploring the outdoors and much more!

Beavers meet at Oxted:

  • Thursday 1730-1830 in Oxted – leader: Mrs Elise Claringbull
  • Wednesday 1700-1800 in Hurst Green – leader: Mrs Lucy Hines
