1st Chorley’s Beavers, tomorrows Chief Scouts in the making


What’s the best thing about Beaver Scouts? Activities, trips and making friends are all part of what makes it so much fun for girls and boys. As well as earning activity badges, many Beavers Scouts get to go on camps and sleepovers, often for the first time. Beaver Scouts like:

  • Being creative – making things and singing
  • Playing games
  • Going on visits and investigating nature
  • Learning about themselves
  • Getting to know other people
  • Discovering the worlds of science, nature and technology
  • Exploring the natural and man-made world
  • Caring – responding to the needs of others, the local and international community

Beavers is the first section in Scouting and is for boys and girls aged 6 to 8.

We have 2 Beaver sections, East is led by Selina Johnson and Debbie Holden with regular help from Elaine Kearsley (Occasional Helper) which meet on a Wednesday Evening at 6:15pm till 7:30pm at Chorley Methodist Church (on Gillibrand Walks).
