Beaver CMYK multi linear

Our Beaver Scout Colony has currently 21 members. The Beavers are a very lively bunch and we try to provide an exciting programme which constantly challenges and teaches them new skills.  We usually join the Cub/Scout camp in May each year for our Camp Sleepover which is an opportunity for us to join with our wider 9th Purley family of Cubs and Scouts!

Beavers are aged between 6 and 8 years old.

Volunteers, leaders and helpers are always welcome!

Beaver Scout Leader: Tana Danielson

Assistant Beaver Scout Leader: Natasha Samuels

Section Assistants: Tom Danielson, James Baster

Parent Rota Coordinator: TBA

We meet on Thursday evenings from 5:30pm to 6.30pm.
