Section meetings are held at the Group Headquarters in the picturesque village of Ben Rhydding in West Yorkshire. Volunteering with us Volunteering’s not just about giving back – it goes both ways. It improves your wellbeing, gives you skills for the future, and helps you make new friends (and memories). Whether you want to be a leader and help every week, or help bring your skills to one of the many jobs that happen in background that keep our group running, there is always a role we need your help with! We are also lucky enough to own a hostel on the slopes of Great Whernside. It was given to us in 1947 and we have maintained and developed it into a fantastic resource available for anyone to hire. Completely off grid and accessible only via foot or 4×4, it is a fantastic remote base for activities in the dales. Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure. 6-8 Years oldMixed Gender Develop new skills. Soar to great heights.

We have been keeping this link going since 1948!
