Beavers

Beavers have fun!... They also

  • play games
  • meet new friends
  • gain badges
  • go on outings and visits
  • go outside and learn about the outdoors
  • create things
  • meet new people
  • listen to stories
  • become Cubs

Beaver Scout activities are a combination of learning and having fun. They learn about themselves and how to look after themselves, they get to know people from their local community. They find out about life in other countries and explore through organised activities. They care by helping those around them.

The best way to find out what Scouts get up to is to find your nearest group and go and see for yourself!

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. They 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.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, 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.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.

Uniform

Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a maroon woggle or one of another colour which identifies their Lodge or team.

All the badges on the right sleeve should be positioned below the embroidered Scouts logo. The 'Ware & District' and 'Hertfordshire County' badges on the right sleeve should read ‘District’ then ‘County’ from left to right, as shown here:
