6 to 8 years

Games, crafts, outdoor activities, camps, and a whole lot more...

Beaver Scouts is the first and youngest section in the Scout Movement for 6 to 8 year olds. As a Beaver, your child will join their Colony in exploring the outdoors, delving into creative crafts, discovering their community, playing games and making friends. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.

After a few weeks of attending Beaver Scouts, your child will be ‘invested’. This is when they promise to do their best and help others. Scouting opens the eyes of young people to a world of extraordinary possibilities.



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.

You can expect your child to get involved in:

  • sleepovers
  • water activities
  • nature walks
  • cooking
  • crafts
  • sports
  • and many more…



Everybody knows that Beavers love badges that get sewn onto the uniform. There are three sorts of achievement badges; activity badges, staged activity badges and challenge awards. Beavers will work towards some of these during their meetings but are also encouraged to work towards badges of their own choice at home so if you are stuck for something to do, have a look at the links for inspiration and encourage your Beaver to bring the evidence of their effort in to show the Leaders and other Beavers.


Activity Badges

These badges allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

Staged activity badges

These are similar to the Activity Badges above, but have different levels of achievement and can be carried through from Beavers to Explorers.


More details

Challenge awards.

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.

Skills for life

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:

  • teamwork
  • problem solving
  • communication
  • and responsibility.


Peace of mind

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.
