This website is for the parents of 280th Norton St James Beavers. Its packed full of useful information about our colony and about Beaver Scouts more generally.
Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.
It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet life long friends.
Our activity badges allow Scouts to demonstrate their progress in various pursuits, and help them to form new interests. They are usually awarded when a young person has completed a challenging yet achievable set of requirements. We also have a number of Challenge Awards, which focus on more ambitious tasks and are themed around the zones of our balanced programme.
The Beaver Scout Promise
I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.
