Who Are We?

Based in the heart of Henfield and part of the Adur Valley Scout District, we are one of the largest and most active Scout Groups in Sussex; every week over 120 young people aged 6-18 from Henfield and the surrounding area join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our top quality Scouting programme.


The Role

Each Colony is made up of young people aged 6 to 8, led by an adult Beaver leader. Other adult volunteers are on hand to supervise activities, share their skills and keep everyone safe.

In some groups, Beaver leaders are nicknamed after characters from nature, books or films. In others, Beavers call their leader by their real first name.

Within their Colony, some Beavers are also part of a Lodge. A Lodge is a smaller group of Beavers, usually headed up by a young person who takes on a peer leadership role (sometimes known as a Lodge Leader or Junior Leader).

Being a peer leader is about being a superhero for a little while – doing things like welcoming new people, being extra helpful during a camp, or taking charge of a game or activity.

Everyone takes it in turns to take on the challenge.

Beavers usually stand together in their Lodges at the beginning and end of meetings. They tend to stick together on trips away, or during certain activities.

This is a great role for anyone who would enjoy engaging and leading young people and creating adventure and fun for them. For more information visit: https://www.scouts.org.uk/volunteer/
