Beaver Scouts are the youngest section our Scouting family.
Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.
Children join our Beaver Scout Colony for many reasons. It might be they have heard great things from their friends about all the things our Colony gets up to every week. Perhaps parents or carers are keen for them to join.
Beavers are aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.
We often have a waiting List and its worth getting your name down on this list sooner rather than later. Ever Considered Volunteering, this may help your chances of getting a space. Just a thought.
A group of Beaver Scouts is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges. Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.
