Beavers are young people usually aged between six and eight years old.
They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family.
Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday.
They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between seven years and six months and eight years six months.
With a varied program and lots of activities, Beaver scouts will make friends, play games, try new things such as cooking and craft making, all providing ample opportunity to let off steam and have lots of fun! Beaver scouts will also work towards many of the badges and awards available to them, ranging from badges for scientific experiments to badges for caring for an animal.
