Beavers

Who?

Beavers accept both boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old.

What?

Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with their friends.

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.  There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.  It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.

Life after Beavers?

Beavers are expected to transfer to Cubs when they attain the age of 8 years. There is a transfer process which is supported with a Link Badge.
