Since Beaver Scouts became part of The Scout Association in 1986, it has been one of the fastest growing Sections. It currently has somewhere in the region of 100,000 members in 7,000 Colonies! The Beaver Scouts at the 1st Hainault Scout Group meet every Sunday for an hour at The Stockade. As well as meeting for indoor activities, the Beaver Colonies have the opportunity to go on day trips and sleepovers.
Beaver Scouting is for young people aged between six and eight years old. When they join, they are invested into the Colony and make their Beaver Scout Promise.
The Beaver Scout Promise is:
I promise to do my best
to be kind and helpful
and to love God.
Part of being a Scout means they wear a uniform. As a Beaver Scout, their uniform is:
Beaver turquoise sweatshirt
Navy Blue Activity Trousers
Beaver Scout Fun Belt
All Terrain Activity Shoes
*(provided by the Group)
There are many other items available to purchase such as the turquoise polo shirt and the baseball cap, but your child must have the above listed items. These can be purchased from Hargreaves Scout Shop, online and possibly from school outfitters. Hargreaves is a short distance from the Stockade and is located on Hainault Road, Little Heath, Romford, RM6 5SR and is open on Friday evenings from 7.15pm to 9.30pm and Saturday afternoons from 2.15pm to 5.30pm. Websites such as www.scoutshops.co.uk and www.mwarrens.co.uk are also very good. Decent all terrain shoes can also be purchased at stores such as Sports Direct.
The Group does not want any Beaver Scouts to miss out due to financial reasons, so if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us about them.

During their time as a Beaver Scout, the young members will have fun, make friends and get to do a range of exciting activities that they wouldn't get to do elsewhere. When they reach the age of 8, the fun doesn't stop. Being a Beaver Scout is the first step in Scouting, after this they move to the 1st Hainault Cub Pack. Click here to find out more about Cubs.
