. . . what it was like to be six?

Every day was a new adventure and fun and friends were what mattered most. Well in Scouting, we still believe that.

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section in The Scout Association, aged between 6 and 8 years old. The Beaver Scouts meet in their Colony of up to 24 members, in lodges of 4 to 6 Beavers.

Enjoying activities, going on trips and making friends are all part of what makes Beavers so much fun for girls as well as boys. As well as earning activity badges, Beavers Scouts get to go on camps and sleepovers, often for the first time.

Beaver Scouts also enjoy;

• being creative

• playing games

• going on visits

• getting to know other people

• discovering the worlds of science, nature and technology

• caring – responding to the needs of others in their local, national and international communities

Due to the high demand for Beaver Scouts we opened a second Beaver Scout Colony in November 2014 and now have the Iron Colony and the Steel Colony. However, there is a 24 month waiting list for Beaver Scouts, so we advise parents to enquire about joining shortly after their child turns four, so they can be added to the waiting list. Due to unprecedented number of enquiries we can no longer accept children on to the waiting list who have already turned 6. Sorry.

We recommend trying 1st Blackhill Scout Group, who meet in the same headquarters as us, or 1st Dipton Scout Group have vacancies.
