Welcome to 11th Spen Valley Beaver Colony!
We currently have a very healthy beaver colony with a mixture of boys and girls aged between 6 and 8
We offer a program of fun filled activities and crafts. From Treasure Hunts to Canal Walks, from making dragons to being a mad scientist, Beavers offers a varied and fun filled program.

The Beaver Scout Section is for young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.
