6 to 8 years: Make friend try new indoor & outdoor activities

Welcome to the Beavers section of scouting. We start their scouting journey so the emphasis is firmly on fun and friendship. Moving on to Cubs is after they are 8 by going to both for 4 weeks.

What do Beavers do?

Have fun! Play games, learn skills through activities that give them the opportunity for recognition of their achievements when we award them badges. All Beavers promise:

The Beaver promise

I promise to do my best, to be kind and helpful And to love God

The Beaver Colony

that your child is joining is led by a Beaver Scout Leader (BSL) – Jennifer Pearce. This is me on the left. We start a colony night with opening and closing ceremonies which include inspection which encourages pride in their uniform and personal belongings. When they formally join they are invested and they get their necker and make the promise above.


Beaver sweatshirt, Polo shirt plus a ‘power pack’ We provide knecker, woggle and all badges.

A guide to where badges go can also be found in the parent portal of OSM.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
