Beaver Scouts are the youngest members of the scouting family and accept both girls and boys. We meet once a week usually in a Beaver Scout Colony. This can be at a Headquarters, school hall, community centre or a church hall.
Beaver Scouts offer a variety of activities including no-cook cooking, making things, listening to stories and learning songs. We play games, have trips out, learn about our community, have visitors come to our meetings and play games. Beavers can work towards badges and even have a Beaver sleepover. Most importantly we have lots of fun.
If you are interested in joining Beaver Scouts as either a Beaver or an adult helper, please contact us and the ADC (Assistant District Commissioner) will contact you with the information that you need to know.
