Beavers

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

Who are Beavers?

Beavers are young people aged 6 to 8 who:

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, on their own doorsteps and beyond

Every week, they gather in groups called Beaver Colonies to hop, skip and jump their way through lots of different games and activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

We meet Fridays at Blacklands Church.

Beaver leaders

All of our leaders 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.

Badges

From your very first day at Beavers to your last day at Explorers, being a Scout is all about trying new things and steadily growing strong. Start with your membership badge and climb all the way up. You can work towards as many as you like, at your own pace. And by the time you move on to Cubs, you’ll have a whole host of achievements under your belt. Are you ready? Let’s get stuck in.
