When young people join Beavers

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting Family. They will be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.

What do Beavers do?

Being a Beaver is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Every week, they gather to hop, skip and jump their way through lots of different games and activities.

Take a look at all the exciting things we get up to over the year.

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, on their own doorsteps and beyond

Learning new things

Going to Beavers is very different from going to school. Instead of learning from books, they will figure the world out by exploring, playing and doing.
The most important skills they will learn at Beavers are the ones that will make them feel super strong standing on their own two feet. We call these character skills. They include things like integrity, which means being honest and doing what they think is right, initiative, which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked.

It's all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping Others

Beavers work as a team to help other people, in their local communities and beyond. Whether they're changing the whole world or helping a friend take the leap to try something new on a rainy Wednesday evening, they always lend a hand.

How to join us

In the first instance, complete the small enquiry form below.
Beavers is open to all, and adjustments can always be made locally to make sure everyone can join in the fun. If you have any questions about accessibility, it's best to chat with your local leader as soon as possible. By being upfront about additional needs from the start, parents/carers can work in partnership with local leaders to make sure their young person has the best experience possible.

Lots of young people want to join Beavers and sometimes they might have to wait for a space to become available before they can start their journey. If there is a waiting list at the time of enquiry, parents and other adults might want to think about what they could do to help out. Regardless of skillset or availability, there's an opportunity for everyone to contribute.

 Trust the Scouts

You're in Good Hands.

When I became Chief Scout in 2009, it was one of the proudest moments of my life.

With every passing day since, I've become even more inspired by the dedication of our leaders and volunteers, who tirelessly prepare young people with skills for life.
