Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, being outdoors, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly making new friends!
Beavers are boys and girls aged between six and eight years old. Once they reach eight years old, they will move onto the Cub Section.
Chief Scout Bear Grylls said ‘Life is about grabbing opportunities’ and we agree! Above everything else, scouting is all about enjoying yourself and there’ll always be plenty to do! Beavers 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!

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beavers to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Staged Activity Badges
Staged activity badges are available to young people from Beavers to Explorers, and cover a range of topics and skills. The stages have increasing levels of difficulty, and a Beaver can begin at whichever stage offers them an appropriate level of challenge.
Achieving a challenge award involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the colony or community. These awards support the main themes of the programme, outdoor, adventure, world and skills. Beavers take part in a range of activities to develop their skills and understanding in each of the challenge areas.
In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the colony, or for time spent in the scouting movement.
