Useful Links

The Scouts website is useful for ideas and a broader understanding of the Scouting movement: https://scouts.org.uk/

OSM (Online Scout Manager) https://www.onlinescoutmanager.co.uk/

We currently use OSM to record personal information such as contact details, it is also used to make payments for subs and activities.

Please Note: OSM can be updated by parents too so that we can always have access to the most up-to-date information to ensure the safety of our Scouts.

Parents can also use the system to give consent for photographs and agree to Gift Aid (Gift Aid allows us to claim on parents subscriptions, it increases our income but at no cost to parents … which is nice!)

Beavers

Structure

A Beaver Colony is organised into smaller groups called Lodges. Lodges can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Beaver Scout Colony.  

Activities

During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements. 

Further information about badges and awards for the Beaver section can be found here

Promise

Activities

During their time in the Pack, Cub Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps.
