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:
The Oak Colony, which meets on Tuesdays at FNEL HQ (normal meeting place is St. George’s International School, but we are unable to meet there due to COVID 19) from 16:45 to 17:45.
The Sycamore Colony, which meets on Thursdays at FNEL HQ (normal meeting place is St. George’s International School, but we are unable to meet there due to COVID 19) from 16:15 to 17:15.
The Oak Colony is led by Ben Finney, with valuable assistance from Zezinha Shaft and Miriam Scargall. The Sycamore Colony is led by Rachel Radway, with valuable assistance from Helen, Annie, and Daniele.
