Beavers, Cubs and Scouts

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts meet every Tuesday during term time at the Salvation Army Church in Cheltenham from 5.45pm for Beavers, 6pm for Cubs and 7pm for Scouts.

Being a part of the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts is a superb opportunity for children to learn and build upon communication and interaction with others around them. The activities will encourage children to work together to accomplish various tasks and will equip them with a number of skills to aid their learning at school and to take with them into adolescence and adulthood.

The Beavers (6-8)

The Beavers are for boys and girls aged 6 to 8 and are the first and youngest section in the Scouting family. Easily recognized by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beavers Scouts enjoy many different activities including going on adventures, games, crafts, making friends and helping others.

The Cubs (8 to 10½)

The Cubs are boys and girls aged 8 to 10½ and are the second section in the Scouting Family. There are lots of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like exploring the world around you, how to look after yourself and stay fit & healthy and many many more activities. After completing some challenges and activities, if you tried hard and did your best you will get a badge to wear on your uniform.

The Scouts (10½ to 14)

Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.

Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
