Being a Beaver
When you join Beavers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. On this page you should be able to find everything you need to know.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Get an introduction to outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative, explore your local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with your friends.
Completing awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best. There are multiple available promises, both religious and non-religious, and we encourage Beavers to discuss the promises and chose the one that they feel most comfortable with.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
Moving up to Cubs
Between the ages of 7½ and 8½, it’s usually time for Beavers to move up to Cubs and embrace their next big adventure.
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
