Beavers enjoyed making Baden Powell Shelters
Fun and friends was the theme of the night as 16 incredibly excited young people met at Lambton Primary for their first night of beavers.

The night was spent getting to each other and meeting the new leader team running the colony, including two volunteers who are completely new to scouting.

Beavers made friendship trees and worked together to make a Baden Powell's Shelters in their new lodges (where they enjoyed juice and biscuits). The also enjoyed getting to know each other quizzes and of course, there were also plenty of games where beavers could let off some energy including chuck. Beaver scout lodges are smaller groups of beavers within the colony, lodges often work together in team games.

There's going to be loads going on in their first programme, as Beavers them find out what it means to be a beaver scout, find out about the local community with a visit to the fire station and meet some furry friends and take part in their first sleepover. You can download a copy of the current programme in our downloads area and information about the investiture and sleepover will follow soon.

4th Washington Scouts is a new group which opened to young people on 25th April 2013. The group is the result of new volunteers coming forward to take on roles within scouting. Could you help us grow the group by becoming a cub leader or a member of the group executive? Find out more about volunteering at
