Welcome to the Beaver pages for the 13th Cambridge Scout Group
We meet on Tuesday’s 6-7pm at the Cyrus Road Scout Hut. Weekly sessions involve games, arts and craft, badge work, learning and lots of fun. We also hold session away from the scout hut. Past activities included a sleepover and hike.
Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between seven years and six months and eight years six months.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.
Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.
