Beaver Scouts are boys and girls aged between 6 and 8 years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family, followed by Cubs, Scouts, and Explorers.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits, and helping others.
Telstar Scouts is proud to have two Beaver Colonies:
Oak, which meets on Tuesdays at St. George’s International School 16:45 to 17:45 , and Sycamore, which meets on Thursdays at St George's International School from 1600 to 1715.
The Oak Colony is led by Faye. and the Sycamore Colony is led by Anneke and with valuable assistance from Claudine, Rachel, Ian and Nadia.

Both Colonies learned about coping with disability see..
From January through the end of the school year Oak Colony will work on the Creative and Outdoor Challenge Badges and the Imagination, Creative, and Air Activity Badges during our sessions.
While we are indoors the creative focus will be on drama and music through a variety of themed sessions including Carnival and Snow Day. We will also start work on camping skills and hope to visit the Nature Museum.
Once the weather improves, we're outdoors for a hike, a picnic, making and flying a variety of aerodynamic models, and some experiments.
As a Beaver in the Sycamore Colony, you will hopefully have fun, learn new skills, learn more about your local community and the wider world, be introduced to outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative and to make new friends from all backgrounds, nationalities and schools here in Luxembourg! This term (September until Christmas) we will be focusing on the Scout Promise, safety, different faiths, disabilities and learning new skills as part of the My Adventure Challenge badge. We also have a Halloween and Christmas party planned! Some of the Beavers went on a Beaver sleepover at Robbeschier in June 2018 and some also went on the Family Camp with all the Scouts this September 2018.
