29th Dublin Blackrock Scouts > Group Sections > The Beaver Section

The Blackrock Beaver Scouts takes children between 6 and 8 years of age (those age six must be in 1st class). Our Beaver Scout section meets on Tuesday evening from 6.30 to 7.45. Beaver Scouts is an introduction to the scouting way! The children enjoy games and activities based on the scouting programme.

What are Beaver Scouts?

Beaver Scouts

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section. They range from 6 to 8 years of age. We start the adventure and the emphasis is maximum fun.. Don't let our cute factor get you as we can be adventurous and daring as any other scouts. While we are having fun we still get to play with others so that we know how to get along with other people. Beaver Scouts are organised in small groups called Lodges. There is normally around 5 people in each lodge. The lodges are collected together in what we call a Colony. We also take on tasks so that we find out about responsibility. We learn lots of new skills by doing them but the most important thing is that we do it with other people, especially our friends

Beaver Scouts are given a say in what is happening in the programme. This is done through review games and at Lodge gatherings (called Log Chews). Log Chew’s should be led by the Scouter but they exist so as to get the opinions of the Beaver Scouts and to take account of these opinions when making decisions for the future.

Beaver Scouts

A Beaver Scout Lodge does not have a permanent leader. Every member should be given the change of leading the Lodge at some time. Individual Beaver Scouts should be given responsibility for minor jobs, such as setting up for activities and tidying up afterwards, so as to build on their ability to take on such jobs.

Every Beaver Scout should have a job within the Lodge, for example minding equipment, putting notices on the board, etc. Scouters should ensure that each Beaver Scout is given the chance to take on additional responsibility as they develop.

The places to see us at our best is camping at Jamóige or the National Beaver Day, but we also do things with our Colony like Slumber nights. We also do things like looking after the world through small things as well as showing others that we can be responsible and be responsible

Beaver Crab Fishing

What a great night crab fishing, everyone caught at least one crab and no one fell in.  Lots more fell off before we could get them out of the water.  Total catch of 25 nippy crabs.
