Beaver Scouts

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. Beavers belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family.

Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between eight and eight years six months.

What do Beavers get up to?

Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

The Beaver Scout Promise is:

  • I promise to do my best
  • To be kind and helpful
  • And to love God.

The Beaver Scout Motto is:

  • Be Prepared


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
