Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between 6 and 8 years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scout Group. Girls and boys can join Beaver Scouts from three months leading up to their 6th birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between 7¾ and 8½.

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.

“The best time was when we made a campfire indoors! (Don’t worry though cos it was made out of leaves and we still got to eat marshmallows!)”
