Beaver Scouts are young people's first steps in scouting. Aged between six and eight years old they will experience lots of activities and have the chance to work towards certain badges. Young people can join Beaver Scouts on their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, at eight years of age.
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.
Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.
