Beavers is the youngest section and is for boys and girls aged between 6 and 8. At 1st Martlesham we have an excellent Beaver section that has run for a number of years. At 8 years old the  Beavers move on up to our Orwell Cub Pack.

The Beavers do a lot of different activities such as games, crafts as well as working towards badges.

Beaver report Autumn 2019

We have 15 beavers at the moment, which includes the 2 new beavers starting this term.

Unfortunately, we lost our permanent parent helper, so at the moment we only have a Leader, an Assistant Leader and a Young Leader.

Last term, we completed the Global Issues Badge by making eco-bricks and benches. We also made water filters and tried some Fairtrade goodies. We also completed many of the Challenge Badges.

We have a sleep over planned for the 14 September and another in December at the Nuclear Bunkers at Kelvedon Hatch.

We applied for the Healthy Lifestyles Microgrant and so we will be looking into activities to do with the Health and Fitness, Cooking and International Badges.

Our Leader achieved the Archery permit so hopefully we will be able to have many archery activities in the future.
