Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between 6 and 8 years old. Young people can join Beavers within the three months leading up to their 6th birthday. They can move up to the next section, Cubs at the age of 8 years. Easily recognised by their distintive turquoise sweatshirts. Beavers enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visting, helping others and camping over night.
Beavers began in 1982 who are the youngest section within the Scouting family, at the start of Scouting only boys could be in Beavers. But from 1991 girls were allowed to join Beavers. They “swim-up” to Cubs when they are eight. Beavers activities aim towards having fun and making friends and exciting mix of adventure and achievement which the Beavers will enjoy whilst in the Colony. Whilst being in the Beaver colony there are many opportunities to gain awards and badges, which are given in recognition of the effort by which each child at their own level of development and understanding.
The Beaver colony only does a few activities because of the age of it’s members. The main activities which are done include:
