Beavers learn about their community, learns lots of new skills and most of all have fun
Introduction to Beavers

Beavers are our youngest members of scouting, and meet for an hour per week in school term time. The age range is 6 to 8 years and is open to boys and girls. 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.

We have returned to face 2 face scouting from 15th September 2021

We are looking forward to the next couple of months settling back into scouting and offering the beavers a well-balanced programme of activities, that will allow them to use their skills, grow their skills and develop their teamwork.
