Who are Beaver Scouts?
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members (6-8yrs). They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. They also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers, these may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them. Throughout all this Beaver Scouts are encouraged to make new friends, try new things and take an interest in the world around them.
Badges and Awards:
Our Activity Badges allow Beaver Scouts to try all sorts of new things and help them form new interests. Staged Activity Badges are available throughout all the sections and allow young people to take on increasing levels of difficulty and skill in each unique area.
Challenge Awards focus on accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or local community, these revolve around the themes of; Outdoor & Adventure, World and Skills. The highest awards in the Beaver Section is the Chief Scout Bronze!
Badges are a way for Beaver Scouts to celebrate and proudly display their skills and achievements on their uniform, they are awarded to those who have done their best and completed the badge requirements. See where they go with this handy Diagram:
