6 – 8 years

Our Beaver Colony

Beavers are our youngest members, and 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.

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.  There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.  It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.

We are always looking for adult volunteers. Would you like to be part of something amazing? Part of Scouting’s mission statement is…

To help young people achieve their full, physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as respected members of their local, national and international communities.

Roles range from committee members to parent helpers and uniformed leaders, it doesn’t matter how much you do, every little helps! Visit the adult volunteers section for more information. Find out more here.
