Welcome to Beavers
Beaver Scouts are young people aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family (Beavers). Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday (5 and 3/4). They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between eight and eight and a half.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.
