Beaver Programme

The philosophy underpinning the programme is that every Beaver Scout should participate in a Balanced Programme over a period of time. The emphasis has shifted from a badge and award driven culture to one that ensures that all young people experience a quality programme covering a wide range of subjects. To help, the Balanced Programme is divided into a number of Programme Zones, methods and underlying ways of working.

Programme Zones
Programme Zones split the whole programme into manageable areas. Each Zone represents a different development area in a young person’s life. There are five Programme Zones in Beaver Scouting. They are:

  • Getting to Know Other People
  • Learning About Yourself
  • Exploring the World Around Us
  • Discovering Creativity and Practical Skills
  • Discovering Beliefs and Attitudes

The twelve methods
These Zones are delivered using 12 methods, which give the programme variety and range. Sometimes one method will be more suitable than another. On occasions you may use a number of methods within the same activity. So you should give your Beaver Scouts opportunities to:

  • Help others
  • Play games
  • Explore their world
  • Undertake prayer and worship
  • Listen to stories
  • Follow themes
  • Go on visits
  • Make things
  • Meet new people
  • Act, sing and make music
  • Chat
  • Go outdoors

Ways of working
Underpinning the programmes you offer to the Beaver Scouts are six ways of working which should be present in every programme. You should give your Beaver Scouts opportunities to:

  • Have fun
  • Make friends
  • Try new things
  • Keep the Promise
  • Make progress
  • Share in groups
