Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family.
Beaver Scouts are boys and girls aged 6 – 8 years old, although some Colonies do accept young people from 5¾ years.
The Beaver Scouts follow a balanced program to offer them a broad range of activities and experiences, but most of all it’s about having fun. Their activities are based around zones and Methods:
There are also a number of trips and activities organised each year, including nights away and activity days at Local Scout Camps.
Children join a Beaver Scout Colony for many reasons. It might be they have heard great things from their friends who go to a local group. Perhaps parents or carers are keen for them to join and develop. Whatever their reasons there is a fantastic programme on offer, packed with Fun!.
There are 17 Colonies within the District and at least one meets each evening Monday – Friday. They welcome boys, girls and adults so, if you’re not already involved, there’s bound to be a Colony closer than you think!
A Beaver Scout Colony can consist of up to 24 Beaver Scouts under the guidance of their leadership team. Colonies usually meet one evening per week for about 1 – 1¼ hours.
