Beavers

Beavers are aged 6-8 years old.

Beaver Scouts 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 (Cub Scouts) between seven years and six months and eight years six months.

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.

Beaver Scout Colonies also organise sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. These can be indoor or out in tents.
