Welcome to the adventure!
Beaver Scouts is the first and youngest section in the Scout Movement for 6 to 8 year olds. As a Beaver, your child will join their Colony in exploring the outdoors, delving into creative crafts, discovering their community, playing games and making friends.
After a few weeks of attending Beaver Scouts, your child will be ‘invested’. This is when they promise to do their best and help others.
Scouting opens the eyes of young people to a world of extraordinary possibilities.
Earn badges, get active and embrace the challenge!
We believe that young people learn by doing, so our Beaver Scout Programme is bursting at the seams with a magnificent variety of activities, which engage and challenge young people of all abilities.
You can expect your child to get involved in:
• water activities
• nature walks
• and many more…
