Beaver Scouts, often shortened to Beavers are young people aged between six and eight years old. Beavers belong to the the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family.
Beavers meet on a Friday evening between 18:00 - 19:15
They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on trips and helping others.
The Beaver Scout Promise
All Beaver Scouts undertake the Beaver Promise which is a simpler version of the Scout Promise:
I promise to do my best,
To be kind and helpful
and to love God
Scouting is available to people of all faiths, as well as people who are humanist, atheist or have no affirmed faith. Similarly, those of other nationalities, who may owe allegiance to their own country. To meet these circumstances, there are different variations of the Beaver Scout Promise
The Beaver Scout Motto
The Beaver Scouts share the general Scout motto of BE PREPARED!
The Beaver Scout uniform is a turquoise sweatshirt, optional turquoise polo shirt and group scarf. The sweatshirt and polo shirt are available from https://shop.scouts.org.uk and the scarf will be provided by the Group on joining - further details will be provided by the Beaver leader.
