Beaver Scouts is a young person's first steps in Scouting. Beavers are aged between six and eight years old and during their time they will experience lots of activities and will work towards badges including the highest Award - the Chief Scout Bronze Award.
Young people can join Beavers on their sixth birthday and when they turn eight years old, they will swim up to Cubs.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet once a week at their local Beaver Scout Colony.
Beaver Scout Colonies also organise sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.
