Overall Beavering is designed on a positive group basis and individual competitions and achievement are not essential parts of the programme. Young people of this age are developing very quickly and in the Colony we build on their skills and take their weaknesses and turn them into strengths.
Some of the activities enjoyed at Beaver meetings include active and quiet games, stories, creative crafts, singing, drama and nature study. About once a month there are special events and activities which include walks, visits and parties. There is also an annual County Beaver Day as well as a County Beaver Christmas Party which are organised by the Programme Coordinators for Beavers in the County.
