Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. They are young people aged between 6 and 8 years who are members of the Scout Association. This section of the movement is called a Colony. In the colony Beavers work in small groups called Lodges. There are usually up to 24 young people in a Colony. Each Colony is looked after by a team of Leaders who plan, run the programme and other activities.

The Principles of the Beaver Scout Programme are:

Making friends
Keeping the promise
Making progress
Having fun

Beaver Scouts get to meet and know people - find out about their family, the family of Scouting, the local community and wider world. Beaver Scouts learn about the themselves - explore their feelings and develop good habits of health and hygiene. Beaver Scouts explore the exciting world around them including science, nature and technology, the natural and the man made world. Beaver Scouts develop their faith in their God and think and try to help others perhaps less fortunate than themselves within the local community and the wider world.


If so, Beaver Scouting is just right for you. You will be able to listen to stories, play games, make things, sing songs, and visit interesting places. You might also be able to go on a sleepover, where you spend a night away from home with the other Beaver Scouts from your Colony.

Now that you know a little more about Beaver Scouts why not contact us for more information and come along and join in the fun.
