Barrington runs a thriving Beaver Colony and Cub Pack group. We meet on a Monday evening in the village hall during term dates from 5:00-6:00pm for beavers, and 6:15-7:30pm for Cubs.
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.
The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.
For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences. Our cubs are aged between 8-10½.
There is no scout troop at the moment (10-14yrs). The existing leaders are willing to start a Scout troop if more leaders can be found for the Beavers and Cubs freeing them up to run the troop.
Please think about volunteering for this, it is great fun, no experience required and free training. You do not even have to have a child in the group. There is a waiting list.
