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.

The Beaver Scout Motto is 'Fun & Friends'. Lots of games and trips will make sure you have plenty of each! You will be able to make things, to sing songs, to listen to stories and to visit places like a fire station. You might also be able to have a sleepover, where you spend a night away from home with the rest of the Colony.
