Following the recent revival of Cubs in Pencaitland after a seven year hiatus, Beaver Scouts are also set to return this March.
A number of interested parents got together last year to begin planning the return of a scouts pack to Pencaitland. With Pencaitland’s Cub Scouts up and running since November last year, proving hugely popular amongst the first new intake of kids, it’s the turn of Beavers.
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family aimed at roughly six to eight year olds. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.
As David Donohoe, who is championing the revival of the Beaver Scouts in Pencaitland, explains: “We’ve already had a fantastic response to the return of the Cub Scouts which started late last year. Now we want to build on that success and encourage parents to sign up their kids to Beavers. Beavers is for those in the six to eight age bracket and will provide a safe and controlled environment on a weekly basis for children to engage in all sorts of group activities to help them develop, learn and most importantly have fun.”
