Beaver Scouts (6-8)

Our Beavers meet on Wednesday evenings, have lots of fun playing games and earn badges. They also take part in Scout Group events and sometimes have days out.

When we meet:

  • Wednesdays: 5:30 pm – 6:50 pm Term Time

Although we try to arrive before the meeting start time, we cannot guarantee being there early so please ensure a Leader is present before you leave your child.

Uniform

As a uniformed organisation, we wear uniform at all meetings other than in exceptional circumstances. You would not be expected to buy uniform immediately, but we would expect you to have bought it within a couple of months of joining. Uniform means trousers and jumper. Only official Scout Association uniform may be worn – and not items that may look similar to it. We present new members with a Group Scarf and woggle. 8th West Wickham Group t-shirts may be worn in warmer weather.

Uniform can be obtained from a number of District Scout Shops around Bromley. A full listing of the district shops can be found here.

The Beaver Promise

“I promise to do my best to be kind and helpful and to love God”

Our Beaver Leaders

Helen Wise (Beaver Scout Leader):

I grew up in the Guiding community and got involved in Scouting when my son started Beavers. I started as a parent helper then an Occasional Helper helping to assess individual’s badge work. I then joined as an Assistant Beaver Leader when a friend of mine took on the role of Beaver Scout Leader. Since September 2020 I have become the main Beaver leader and have just completed all of my training. I enjoy helping young people grow in confidence and see them having fun learning new skills.

I am a part-time Primary School Teacher and I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
