Who are Beaver Scouts?
Beaver Scouts are young girls and boys between the ages of six and eight. They are the youngest section in the Scout Movement. They meet together, each week, at a Colony meeting.
The Beaver Scout Colony
The Beaver Scout Colony is composed of a group of Beaver Scouts, which meet weekly for around an hour. The Colony will also include a team of dedicated adults. The team is likely to include Beaver Scout Leaders, Assistant Beaver Scout Leaders and Sectional Assistant who attend regularly. There may also be Young Leaders, who are members of the Explorer Scout Section to help with activities.
Beaver Scout Balanced Programme
The Beaver Scout Balanced Programme supports and promotes a variety of activities which cover different aspects called 'Programme Zones'.
Progress is rewarded in the Colony with a series of badges which Beaver Scouts will love to gain and wear on their uniforms.
Using the 'Programme Zones' the Beaver leaders will ensure that these badges are achievable.
