As we celebrate 35 years of Beaver Scouts in 2021, I have compiled a list of activity ideas you could use in your colonies to celebrate. You could try these with your Colony (in-person or online) or with your family at home.
These activities will fit into many of our Beaver Badges and can be changed and used even after 31st December 2021. There is no pressure to do them, I just thought that it is a good idea and hope it helps you with some easy programme planning.
If you run these activities in your Colony, ensure the appropriate activity risk assessments are completed and COVID-19 restrictions are followed. If you’re trying them at home, think about safety and any risks and hazards.

Beavers and adults at home: When you try some (or hopefully all 35!) of these challenges, make sure you shout loudly about Beavers being 35 years old! Ok, maybe you don’t need to shout out loud – but make sure to take photos and videos while you take part and share them with your Colony, Beaver Leaders and on social media with #Beavers35
Beaver Leaders: Let us know how your Colony is getting on through the West Mercia Beaver Section Facebook group and make sure to share pictures and updates on your Group’s public social media pages – let’s use this to spread the word that Scouts are back!
