Beavers

Otley Bridge Beavers

What’s Beavers?

Our Beaver Colony accepts children from 6 to 8 years old.  We have our meetings in the Church Hall from 6.15 for an hour.  All children are welcome to join our colony, though it may be that we have to hold a bit of a waiting list if the demand gets too high!!  Our Beavers then hopefully when they are around 8 years old will join our Cub section.

What do we do?

We have a balanced programme from healthy eating, life skills to crafts and active games.  We involve the Beavers in deciding their programme.

The evening usually runs in the following way:

  • Start with a colony welcome
  • Outline what we are going to do
  • Programme Activity
  • Games

How often do we meet?

We meet weekly on a Monday evening.  Each month we have our church parade.  This is the second Sunday of each month.

When Schools are on Holiday we are too!! We also break for festivals/events that are on the same night as Beavers e.g.Bonfire Night.

What’s the cost?

Its £1 per week, and £38 capitation per year (Sept – Aug)
