Beaver Scouts are our youngest members (6-8). They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


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.


Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader’s discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends). If you wish to find out more about joining Beavers please use our contact form.

What do Beavers wear and where can I buy it?

All members of Scouts (adults and young people) wear a coloured scarf or necker, this is provided by us to the young people when they have been invested. Uniform can be bought from Scout Shops.
