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 16:15 to 17:15.
The Oak Colony is led by Faye, with valuable assistance from Benn, and the Sycamore Colony is led by Rachel, with valuable assistance from Helen, Annie and Nadia.

OAK COLONY NEWS – Watch this space
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 indoor, 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 outdoor 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!
In the autumn term we will be welcoming our new Beavers and working towards many badges both indoors and outdoors, including, MySkills Challange, Photography, Global Issues and Experiments. Our Beavers will also take part in the Telstar Group Camp in late September, a first camp for many our our youngest scouts. We also have a Halloween and Christmas party planned! We will be a very busy colony.
