Beavers

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Joining

Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


Structure

A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

News & Blogs


As face-to-face Scouting is currently suspended the 9th Kenton Beavers, Cubs & Scouts have been busy by taking the opportunity to draw pictures to send off to brighten the walls of the new NHS Nightingale Hospital at the ExCeL Arena. 
They have also been colouring thank you posters to display in their front windows to thank local NHS & Key Workers for all that they are doing to keep the UK going during this uncertain time. We have already seen some lovely drawings & look forward to receiving many more.

Summer Camp 2019 - Paccar Scout Camp
17/07/2019 By Keith Savage
 
This camp was planned well over a year ago.  It is the first time that we have camped at PACCAR Chalfont St Peter and we wanted to make sure that everything was just right for the young people to have a thoroughly enjoyable time at camp. PACCAR have spent a lot of money on new activities in the past couple of years and we wanted to take advantage of those exciting activities for our young people.  We had 25 young people at camp with us with nine Adult Leaders. 
 
The weather in the week preceding the camp with horrendous and even on the Thursday before camp contingency plans were being made just in case the weather remained wet and dismal.  As it turned out, apart from some rain on Saturday afternoon and again very early on Sunday morning, the camp was dry and everybody enjoying the sunshine when the sun shone. 
 
Those young people that attended had exciting and adventurous activities and a thoroughly enjoyable time from start to finish -  they started on the Friday evening with the Adventure Trail through to them zooming down a 180m twin zip wire, abseiling down from the top of a high tower and facing the Gladiator Challenge on the Saturday to rifle shooting, archery and crate stacking which took place on the Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  As you can see from the photos the young people had a fantastic time. 
 
The young people were all thoroughly well-behaved and helped to put away the tents, which luckily dried after the rain on Sunday morning, in bright, sunny, warm weather.  The campsite was cleared of all rubbish and everybody went home exhausted but exhilarated by another exciting 9th Kenton Cub and Scout camp. 
 
A camp like this doesn’t come together by itself and I would like to thank all of my fellow Leaders for their help in the numerous planning meetings, reccy visit, shopping trips, food order placement, cooking, cleaning, tidying up and looking after all of the young people over the weekend.  We really couldn't run a camp like this without the help and support the whole give and I would like to thank each and every one of them for making this a truly unforgettable camp for the young people.

On Sunday the 12th March all three sections from the 9th Kenton Scout Group took part in the annual District five a side competition at the Harrow Leisure Centre.  Beavers entered two teams, Cubs three & Scouts two teams.  All did really well with the Cubs team reaching the final of their competition & the two Beaver Teams going one step further & facing each other in the final.  Rohan Ruda did really well as he was awarded Cub player of the tournament.
 
As you can see from the photos everybody looked great in their 9th Kenton football kit & the Beavers & their Leaders looked really proud as they held up the Reg Styles Cup that they had won.

9th Kenton Summer Camp - June 2017
28/07/2017 By Keith Savage

Wow what a fantastic weekend this was as 23 Cubs & 15 Scouts as well as 3 Young Leaders joined us at Tolmers Scout Activity campsite for our summer 2017 camp.  For many of the Cubs it was their first time away with us & experiencing sleeping in a tent, others had camped with us before.

Over the weekend fun was had by all taking part in a number of exciting activities - kayaking, rifle shooting, water wars, sweeper, an inflatable assault course, wide games & a giant slide.  They also had time to play games or explore the woods or the campsite.  On the Saturday evening we had our traditional campfire.

The experiences gained over this weekend enhanced all aspects of Scouting for those who attended.   

This camp was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone as the pictures confirm.  We look forward to our 2018 summer camp at Gilwell Park in June next year.
