We normally suggest you come to a few meetings to see whether Beavers is for you – it might not be and we’d rather you find that out sooner rather than later as we do have a very long waiting list and other people would welcome the chance to join us if you decide it’s not for you.
After five or six meetings we’ll hold an investiture ceremony where we’ll officially welcome you into our colony. During this ceremony you’ll need to learn and say the Beaver Scout promise:
I promise to do my best, to be kind and helpful and to love God
From then on you’re an official Beaver Scout and you can stay with the colony until you’re around 8 years old. After that you’ll have the opportunity to move on up to the Cub Scout group which meets at the Millennium Hall in Purton.
