“The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather.”

Beavers are our youngest members and meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepovers and camps with their friends.

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.  There is a little flexibility in the age range: young people can join from the time they are 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8.

During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers and camps. Participation is important rather than meeting set standards – giving it a go is all we ask!  We offer a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain in recognition of their achievements.
