What is Beaver scouting?

Beaver scouts belong to the first and youngest section in the scouting family.

Beaver scouts are recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirt and their group scarf.

Beaver scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits, helping others and being introduced to scout craft.

How do I become a Beaver Scout?

Beaver scouts start at 6 years old. At times there is a waiting list, it is advised that parent speaks to leaders before the child’s 6th birthday.

Once the young person has attended for about four or five weeks, you will be advised to buy a uniform, once you have a uniform then you can be invested as a Beaver Scout.


What is involved in being invested?

In front of your fellow beaver scouts, you make a promise, you will know the promise and understand the Beaver scout motto. When getting invested you will be given some badges and become a member of the worldwide scout movement.

The Beaver Scout Promise The Beaver Scout Motto
I promise to do my best,
To be kind and helpful,
And to love God.
Fun and Friends.

Be Prepared.


Beaver Scout Badges

When you join, you will be given a world badge, district badge, county badge and a group name tape. These will be explained later on in this document. During their time in Beavers, the young people will work towards ‘activity badges’ which are round and worn on the right sleeve. There are 19 activity badges in total. Details of the requirements for each badge can be found on

There are also 6 ‘challenge badges’ which are diamond shape, which lead on to the Chief Scouts bronze award. These badges are worn on the front of the Beaver jumper, are slightly harder and take longer to achieve.
