Beaver Scouts (6-8 years)
What is Beaver Scouts?
Beaver Scouts is the youngest section of Scouting. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, playing games, going out on visits, learning how to be safe and making new friends.
If you are a parent looking to get your child into Beavers the district can help you find a local Beaver Colony. Waiting Lists are high for Beavers so it is a good idea to get on the waiting list early.
Beaver Scouts learn to:
- Play games
- Explore outdoors
- Listen to stories
- Go on visits
- Do creative activities
- Help others
When you do them you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.
Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres under the care and supervision of experienced leaders.
