5th Risca Beavers

Registered Charity 524995

CRAI District Scouts, Mid Glamorgan

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Joining

Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


Structure

A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

Beavers visit Techniquest and the Senedd

Today the Beavers had a long but fun day in Cardiff bay. After an early start, we had a great time in Techniquest, completing activities for many different badges! We walked across to the welsh assembly building and excitedly went through the security! We had a guided tour and discussed many different topics including, Health, education, environment and sustainability. We learnt about how energy efficient the building is and how it was designed and built taking into consideration accessibility, supporting welsh industry, and making sure it will last a long time without needing anything renewed or replaced. 

i think we all learnt quite a few things today and had an experience that we may not have had without the amazing access a scouting badge can give us!

Tonight the Beavers from 5th Risca had an awesome night of paddle boarding and trying out their bush craft skills!! They got to spend an hour on the lake at the scenic drive with a great instructor and they had an hour collecting sticks, building a fire and toasting marshmallows. 

So pleased to see so many taking part in what was a great opportunity for our young people. The beaver leaders were so proud of the way everyone behaved tonight! Everyone gave it a go and enjoyed themselves!! 

Well done Beavers! Some fantastic work toward some badges!
