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: James Baster
Assistant Beaver Scout Leaders: Jing Mons & Wayne La
Parent Rota Coordinator: Anna Froome
We meet on Thursday evenings from 5:30pm to 6.30pm.
The Beavers enjoyed their Sleepover at Bears Wood this July whilst celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Gruffalo story. With hot chocolate they had the Gruffalo story to music with a campfire and then slept in their pop-up tents. Next day they prepared and cooked their own lunch on fires and had tea and cake in the afternoon. Lots of special awards were given out for our excellent Beaver campers!
9th Purley Beavers have visited Foxley Lodge Care Home every month as part of The Million Hands project. The Beavers spent time engaging with residents by reading books to them and talking about their uniforms and badges.
