'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.'
Activities Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitment of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends. The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver scouts are young pepple aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5 3/4, and can move to Cubs between age 7 1/2 and 8 1/2. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs - please discuss this with a leader if you feel this may be necessary.
Structure A Beaver Colony may be organised into smaller groups called Lodges. Lodges can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Beaver Scout Colony. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Beaver Scouts to gather at points at the start, during or at the end of the Colony meeting. During their time in the colony, Beavers Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

Cubs Scouts visited the Salvation Army - 02nd February
Cubs had a wonderful time visiting Alison & her team at the Salvation Army as part of their World Challenge Badge. We learnt about the amazing things the Salvation Army do for people in the community and everybody brought something to donate to the food bank. What a wonderful evening!
Cubs & Scouts visit Shanks Recycling Centre - 16th Feb 2017 Cubs & Scouts had the fantastic opportunity to visit Shanks Waste Disposal centre at Bolton-Upon-Dearn to see what happens to all of the rubbish we throw away from Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham. We played a recycling game and learnt how our waste is turned into fuel bricks which are then transported to the energy centre near Castleford. You have probably seen it - the one just off of the A1M. Have a look at our facebook page for more photos! https://www.facebook.com/goldthorpescouts
