6 – 8 Years Old

Beavers is a young person’s first step into the Scouting family. At weekly meetings and other events they try new things, learn new skills, play games, earn badges and generally have fun!

Beavers go on sleepovers, to get their first taste of camping. Usually this will just be over one night, perhaps starting on a Saturday morning, doing activities all day, sleeping over and then being collected on the Sunday morning. 

Beavers are split into groups called ‘lodges’, with each lodge having a lodge leader (one of the older Beavers).
