BEAVERS (6-8 years)
About Beaver Scouts
Beaver Scouts are our Junior Section for 6 – 8 year olds who meet in a group called a Lodge, each Lodge would have a Lodge Leader and a Scouter to help.
The Beaver Scout Programme is designed to meet the needs of young people of this age group. The emphasis is on meeting and interacting with young people of the same age in a programme based around fun and discovery.
Beaver Scouts work towards the same ideals as the other Scout Sections (Cub Scouts, Scouts & Venture Scouts) that seek to develop the young person physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. When a young person joins a Beaver Section they make a promise which states
“I promise to do my best, to be a good Beaver Scout; to love God and to love one another”.
Some Beaver activities include: Hiking, Slumber Nights, Pioneering, Kayaking, Camping, Crafts, Halloween Party and taking part in various County Events.
The Beaver Uniform and badges can be bought online in the Scout Shop.
