Beavers

Beavers is for the youngest boys and girls aged approx. 6 to 8 1/2. Like our other groups, Beavers aims to get youngsters and their parents having lots of boisterous adventurous fun together.

Caldecote doesn’t currently have a Beavers group.

Beavers: could you be involved?

Are you or any of your friends interested in having a Beavers group available for your children? Do you know 2-3 other Caldecote parents you could see yourself working with? We started Cubs and Scouts from scratch here in Caldecote for our children, and we could help guide you with Beavers. We’ve put the infrastructure in place (committee, bank accounts, treasurer) and we’ve trodden the path ahead of you. You could talk to us, and we’d tell you about the fun we’ve had along the way (and what to watch out for). Please contact us if you think you might want to get involved.

Do you want to get your children into Cubs and then Scouts?

We started Cubs and Scouts because we wanted these groups available for our own children in Caldecote. If Caldecote had a Beavers group, those youngsters would take priority for Cub and then Scout places. Getting involved in leading Beavers (or one of our other groups) is the best way of ensuring that your own children are involved in Cubs and Scouts. Please contact us if you think you might want to get involved.

Beavers: contact us

If you think you would like to get involved in a new Beavers group please contact us.
