Beavers are our youngest members, they enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.

Beaver Scouts are young people typically aged between 6 and 8 years old, however we plan the moves between sections as a group and there is flexibility in the ages to allow for this.  

A Beaver Colony may be organised into smaller groups called Lodges. Lodges can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Beaver Scout Colony. 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.

The Beaver Scout Promise

There are a number of variations of the Beaver Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. If you want to read them all please take a look at  The promise we usually use is:

I promise to do my best

To be kind and helpful

And to love God.

The Beaver Scout Law

There is no formal Beaver Scout Law. The concepts expressed in the Scout Law are to be presented to Beaver Scouts through games, storytelling and other informal activities.

The Beaver Scout Motto

Be prepared!!
