8th Chelmsford Beaver Colony

Christmas visit to Colchester Zoo Dec 2019

Essex Search & Rescue Evening Autumn Term 2019



8th Chelmsford Beaver Scouts meet at the Scout Hut during school term time on a Thursday between 6:00pm and 7:15pm




We are the youngest members of the Scouting family and are open to both Boys and Girls aged between 6 and 8 years.



Are you ready for the challenge?



We are about fun and friendship. You will make friends who will follow you through Scouting and through life.


Our activities include:

  • Crafts,
  • Camping,
  • Exciting Outdoor Activities,
  • Visits
  • Games 

There is no such thing as a typical meeting.



There are opportunities to take part in the excellent annual Family Camps held by 8th Chelmsford Scout Group, this is where Beaver Scouts have taken part in such activities as Ice Wall Climbing, Abseiling and Wooden Tobogganing!


8th Chelmsford Scout Group is part of Chelmsford and District Scouts and there are opportunities to take part in events run by the District, these have included:-


  • Sleepovers,
  • Day visits to the seaside,
  • Colchester Zoo at Christmas to visit Santa!


Taking part in activities gives you opportunities to work towards your Challenge Badges and the highest award in Beaver Scouting – The Chief Scout’s Bronze Award - before moving onto Cub Scouts, the next rung on the Scouting ladder.



Sounds great! What do I have to do?


That’s easy!  Bring your Mum, Dad or Carer to any of our meetings and get them to speak to any of the leaders, or contact us on the link along the top of this website and a leader will get back to you.


  You’ll get to come along for a few weeks to see if you’ll like it, if you do you can start wearing the uniform and you’ll be invested – this is where you promise to do your best and you will get the first of your badges to wear on your uniform.  All we ask in return is that you have fun!


 See you soon!
