Beavers

Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure

Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouti

Beavers are 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, Cubs, between 8 and 8.5 years old.

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.

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.

Beaver uniform consists of a blue sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to.
