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, after their eighth birthday.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, learning new skills, going on visits and helping others. During the meetings Beaver Scouts work towards a number of activity badges.
After a few weeks of enjoying being a Beaver you will be invested . This is a ceremony where you will be asked to repeat the Beaver Promise. When you are invested you will be given your scarf and you will join a lodge.
We have two Beaver Scout Colonies called Captains Wood and Sparkey Wood.
Captain’s Wood Monday (term time) 16.45 -18.15 hrs.
Sparkey Wood Wednesday (term time) 16.45 -18.15 hrs.
