Beavers (6-8 years)

Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure.

Being a Beaver

Beavers are for boys and girls ages 6 to 8 years old.

When you join Beavers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s the basics you need to know.

Activities and what you’ll get up to

Get an introduction to outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative, explore your local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with your friends.

Badges and awards

Completing awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.

What Beavers wear

You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!

Note to existing members: You can see exactly where badges should go using OSM.

The Beaver volunteers

All of our adults are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills.

No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
