Our members learn new skills, follow a challenging and adventurous programme, make new friends and above all have fun.

Beavers are boys and girls aged 6 to 8 years and meet on Thursday Evenings 6:30 to 7:30 pm.

Introduction to Beavers
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. 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.

Our Beaver Colony is organised into smaller groups called Lodges. Lodges are used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Beaver Scout Colony. They may provide a ‘home’ area for Beaver Scouts to gather at the start, during or at the end of the Colony meeting.

During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

The Beaver Scout Promise
There are a number of variations of the Beaver Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting:

For Christians, Jews and Sikhs
I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.

For Hindus and Buddhists
I promise to do my best
to be kind and helpful
and to love my Dharma.

For humanists, atheists and those with no defined faith
I promise to do my best
to be kind and helpful
and to love our world.

For Muslims
I promise to do my best
to be kind and helpful
and to love Allah.

The Beaver Scout Law
There is no formal Beaver Scout Law. The concepts expressed in the Scout Law are to be presented to Beaver Scouts through games, storytelling and other informal activities.

The Beaver Scout Motto
Be prepared

The Beaver Scout flag is light blue, bearing the Scout symbol and the Scout Motto.

Beaver Scouts may wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a maroon woggle, or one of another colour which identifies their Lodge or team.
