Beaver Scouting is all about having fun, making friends and learning new skills. Youngsters start to gain some independence while trying out many different activities and experiencing new adventures. They follow a balanced programme, earning Challenge Awards and Activity Badges and trying new and different things.

The fun includes going on visits, arts and crafts, playing games and exploring the world around them. They learn about other people and about themselves. Boys and girls aged 6 can become a Beaver Scout and around the time of their 8th birthday, Beavers ‘swim up’ to Cubs to continue on their path through Scouting.
