Your Beaver's First Weeks

Your Beaver's first few fun-filled weeks will be spent making friends and joining in with Colony activities. They are welcome to take part in all of the activities offered, including any camps, hikes and visits.

New Beavers will not require uniform until their investiture, they should simply be comfortably dressed in suitable activity clothes.

New Beavers are allocated to a lodge during their first week so that they can settle in quickly with help from experienced lodge leaders and have someone to help them find their feet.

Investiture will usually happen after approximately six weeks. Parents, Carers and family are encourage to attend and share this important event. During their investiture new Beaver Scouts make their promise and formally join the Scouting movement.

The uniform your Beaver will need consists of a Beaver Scout jumper and activity trousers. The Group will provide a necker, badges and a woggle. Some second-hand uniform is available, please ask the Colony leaders for more information.

The Colony leadership team are always happy to discuss any queries or issues you or your Beaver may have both before they join the section and once they have started.
