Our Beaver Colony is made up of young people aged 6-8, and aims to do as many fun, exciting, and creative activities as possible!
The 6th Harrow, originally known as the 1st Wealdstone, opened in 1911, and was also known as the 10th Harrow for a short while. Having changed meeting locations and names for the last time, the Group finally settled as the 6th Harrow in 1955 and meets in a Headquarters built by parents, friends, and leaders of the Group, which was officially opened in 1961. From humble beginnings the 6th Harrow has grown to be one of the top Groups for Harrow Scouts.
The Group wears a distinctive red and yellow scarf, the origin of which is said to lie in a joke that backfired. If the legend is true, the red and yellow we are all familiar with is actually supposed to be a combination of scarlet and gold…
Now over 100 years old, the 6th Harrow is as strong as it has ever been, with all 3 sections regularly taking part in fun, creative, adventurous, and often unique, activities.
Scouting is one of the great success stories of the last 100 years. From an experimental camp for 20 boys on Brownsea Island in 1907, it has spread to 216 countries and territories, with an estimated 28 million members.
DO YOU Remember…
… what it was like to be six or eight? Every day was a new adventure and fun and friends were what mattered most.
Well in the 6th Harrow Scouts, we still believe that.
"My boys love it here. Positive memories are always being created."
"My son loves it.
Best evening of the week."
