4.5 to 6 years
This is a section for four to six year olds called Squirrels, to help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it’s most needed.
Being a Squirrel
When you join Squirrels, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.
Completing awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
Become an expert in something you love, or try something shiny and new. There’s a badge to suit each and every Squirrel.
Moving up to Beavers
Eventually, it’ll be time to say goodbye to Squirrels and explore your next big adventure with Beavers.
Squirrels uniform and badge placement
You don’t need the uniform to join, but once you’ve settled in, you’ll be taking part in exciting activities and earning badges. So you’ll need somewhere to put them!
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe and open to all. Some lead the Drey 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.
