2nd Bulford Beavers

“The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather.”

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.

Beavers meet on Tuesdays, 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

For more information contact Badger (Caroline Lewis).


The word ‘Programme’ in Scouting refers to the range of activities, challenges and experiences that young people experience in Scouting. This programme of activities is planned by the leadership team in partnership with young people. The Programme should be flexible and have room to adapt and accommodate the needs of the individuals in the section.

The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme should be delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.

Beaver Programme: September – December 2019

There may be changes to this programme. If this occurs you will be notified by e-mail or Facebook. Please make sure the leaders have an up to date e-mail address.
These activities are being held at the Scout Hut in Milston Road unless otherwise stated.
