Beaver leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.

Beavers meet at Aylestone Scout & Guide Hut, Church Street, Leicester LE2 8ND.

Lodges

Each group of Beavers is called a ‘Colony’, taking its name from a group of these animals in the wild. Within the Colony, beavers are organised into sub-groups known as ‘Lodges’ which are named after trees.

Each Lodge is made up of around 6 beavers of a range of ages and new beavers usually join a Lodge in which they know at least one person.

Typical Beaver Night

We welcome parents and carers to come in anytime if they want to experience or know more.  If you have any questions regarding the nightly or term programme please do come in and speak the Beaver Leader(s).

Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. We also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home.

    Why do we as Scouts celebrate St George’s Day? This is because Baden-Powell chose St Georg to be the patron saint of Scouts. He wanted St George’s Day to be a time to reflect on the Scout promise and what it means to be a Scout. We would normally be looking towards our St George’s…
