Beavers (6-8 years old)
‘The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather.’
The first step your child may take into the Scouting movement will be to join the Beavers. The Beavers section was started in 1986.
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. Other activities include investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.
Beaver Scouts 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.
Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure.
