Welcome to the adventure!
The Beaver Scouts is the first and youngest section in the Scout Movement for young people aged between 6 and 8 years old. As a Beaver Scout they will join a Colony and work in small groups called ‘Lodges’. Beaver Scouts take part in a wide range of activities, including exploring the outdoors, delving into creative crafts, discovering their community, playing games, going on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories and making friends. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities provided by the leadership team. Badger (Daniel Evans – Beaver Scout Leader) runs the Grylls Colony, assisted by separate teams of adults which can be found on our Team Page. Scouting opens the eyes of young people to a world of extraordinary possibilities.
After a few weeks of attending Beaver Scouts your young person will be ‘invested’. This is when they make their promise to do their best and help others. To find various versions of the Beaver Scout Promise on our website.

Scouting is more than just having fun; Beaver Scouts learn skills that are essential to their personal development and reaching their full potential. As well as developing a range of practical skills, your young person will have the chance to develop skills such as; teamwork, problem solving, communication, and responsibility.
