3rd Newbury – Beavers (6-8 years old)

Beaver Scouts are boys and girls aged between six and eight.   They meet in ‘Colonies’. They are easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts take part in a range of activities which include:

  • Being creative – making things and singing
  • Playing games
  • Going on visits and investigating nature
  • Learning about themselves
  • Getting to know other people
  • Discovering the exciting world of science, nature and technology
  • Exploring the natural and manmade world.
  • Caring – responding to the needs of others, the local community and the wider world.

By taking part in activities, Beaver Scouts can earn badges to go onto their uniform.

Groups can also take part in events or competitions with other Beaver Scout Colonies from their local area.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise sleepovers – often the first time young people spend a night away from home without their parents
