Beavers are young people aged 6 to 8 who:
- Master new skills and try new things
- Have fun and go on adventures
- Make friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference, on their own doorstops and beyond
Going to Beavers is very different from going to school. Instead of learning from books, you’ll figure the world out by exploring, playing and doing.Euxton Methodist Beavers often find themselves out and about in the local area, enjoying sleepovers and camping, and developing an understanding of the world around them.
Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10½ who:
- Master slightly more complex skills and start to develop responsibility
- Continue to have fun and go on slightly more challenging adventures
- Make friends
- Develop their social understanding of the communities and people in the local area
- Help others and make a difference based on experiences that are personal to them
Some of the skills the Cubs develop will be practical, like knowing how to cook a delicious meal or give someone first aid. Others will allow them to become a master at their chosen hobby, or help you them to succeed in whichever job they decide to do when they grow up. Euxton Methodist Cubs also find themselves out and about locally and maybe further afield into Rivington. The Cubs have opportunities to camp or enjoy day long events that allow them to make new friends and develop their independence.
Scouts are a go-getting group of young people aged
10 ½ to 14 who:
- Master new skills and excel in other skills they have developed
- Make new friends and understand the benefits of working together as a team of friends
- Have fun and go on adventures, at home and abroad whilst demonstrating independence and responsibility
- Explore the world around them and are actively encouraged to voice their views and be role models
- Help others and make a difference in their own communities and beyond, and identify how they can make a difference
Scouts start small but think big. They stand up for what they believe in and make a difference on their doorstops, confident in the knowledge that their daily actions add up. In a society that can often feel increasingly isolated and inward facing, Scouts build bridges and break barriers. Euxton Methodist Scouts feel that they have a strong identity within our community and are constantly looking at ways to benefit our locality. The Scouts are stretched with their views and given outdoor challenges that ideally prepare them on the pathway to becoming a young adult.
