Beaver Scouts Colony (Members)
Beaver Scout Leader:
Assistant Beaver Scout Leaders:
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.
During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
Earn badges, get active and embrace the challenge!
We believe that young people learn by doing, so our Beaver Scout Programme is bursting at the seams with a magnificent variety of activities, which engage and challenge young people of all abilities.

Scouting is more than just having fun: Beaver Scouts learn skills that are essential to their personal development and reaching their full potential.
As well as developing a range of practical skills, your child will have the chance to develop skills such as:

To ensure your child is safe, Leaders adhere to our anti-bullying, equal opportunities, safety and child protection policies.
Beaver Scouts take part in activities and learn new skills under the supervision of adult volunteers.
They work effectively and safely with young people to deliver the Scout Programme and have access to training to support them in their role.
