What Is Beavers

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next section, Cub Scouts, between eight and eight years six months.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

The Beaver Scout motto is “fun and friends”. We will play lots of games, do craft things, sing songs, listen to stories and go on visits. You might be able to go on a Beaver sleepover when you spend a night away from home with the rest of the colony.

Once you have been to Beavers for four weeks you will have your investiture. This is a big word but what it really means is that you will be a proper member of the Beaver family and you will be presented with your first badges to put on your beaver sweatshirt.

You will be able to work to achieve other badges. By the time you leave Beavers to go to Cubs you should have quite a collection.
