Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
When and Where Do We Meet?
The 1st Helsby Beaver colony meet on Tuesday evening from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
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. We have the following Lodges in our Beaver Colony:-
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) or use our contact form here.
