The Beavers are the youngest element here at the 1st Portsmouth and is made up of boys and girls aged between 6 and 8 years old. We meet in Cathedral House, behind the Anglican Cathedral, in Old Portsmouth on Wednesday evenings during term time from 1715-1815hrs. Although we are a Sea Scouting Group, the Beaver uniform is the same as our Land Beaver counterparts and consists of a blue beaver jumper (normally covered in hard earned badges) and the 1st Portsmouth black and royal blue necker.
The Beaver leaders run a wide range of activities from cooking to knot tying and star gazing to team building, and along with a bewildering variety of games to keep the Beavers entertained and engaged, the evenings are never dull. In the summer months the Beavers tend to do more outdoor activities including wide games (large open space games) and skills work either on the Cathedral Green and on Southsea Common.
