Beaver Scouts

Beavers are aged between six and eight years old,
who make up the first section of the Scouting family, before Cub Scouts.


A group of Beaver Scouts is called a Colony.  A Colony of Beaver Scouts is organised into Lodges. 
Lodges can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Beaver Scout Colony.
Lodges are nominally denoted by the colour of the woggle.

They may provide a ‘home’ area for Beaver Scouts to gather at points at the start, during or at the end of the Colony meeting.


Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits
and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.  
Beaver Scout Colonies may also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home.
They take place in tents or a suitable building, often Scout centres.

Beaver Scouts lives up to its motto of “Fun & Friends!”
