Beavers (ages 6 to 8)

Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure.

Being a Beaver

When you join Beavers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.

Activities and what you’ll get up to

Get an introduction to outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative, explore your local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with your friends.

Badges and Awards

Completing badges and awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.

The Beaver Promise

As a values-based movement, we all make a “promise” – an oath that helps us to be our best. Each section has a different promise which can be changed for different religous beliefs.

Uniform and badge placement

You don’t need a uniform as soon as you join Beavers – you can get one after a few weeks, once you’ve settled in. You’ll soon start earning badges and you’ll need to know where to put them!

Moving up to Cubs

Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Beavers and embrace your next big adventure.

Beaver leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
