Since Beaver Scouts became a part of The Scout Association in 1986, it has been one of the quickest growing sections. The Beaver Scout Colony will tend to meet weekly for about an hour, but they will also have the chance to go on a residential experience every year and there might also be day trips away. Beaver Scouting is open to young people aged between six and eight years old who want to join and can make the Beaver Scout Promise.   Beaver scouting differs from many organisations in that it requires its members to make a promise. The wording for Beaver Scouts is simpler than that of the Scout Promise, it is:

  • I promise to do my best
  • to be kind and helpful
  • and to love God.

Different wordings of the promise are available for those of different faiths who may prefer not to use the word “God” and for those with special circumstances and needs. Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt. They also wear a scarf (sometimes called a “necker”), which varies in colour from Scout Group to Scout Group. They also have a woggle, to keep their scarf up. Traditionally all Beaver Scouts wear a maroon coloured woggle, but they may also wear a woggle of the colour of the Lodge they are in IMG_2816

What do Beaver Scouts do? Beavers take part in a wide range of activities. These include making things, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities provided by the leadership team. Activities include:

  • Helping others
