Beavers are the youngest section in the Scouting Family and are aged between six and eight years old.
What we offer to young people in the Beaver Scout section is a range of exciting activities, events and experiences which all work together to achieve the Chief Scout Bronze, which is the highest award a Beaver can gain.
In the pursuit of the Chief Scout Bronze award Beaver Scouts must gain all 6 of the Challenge Awards, and at least 4 of the 20 Activity Awards or Staged Awards.
When working with such young members it is essential to keep the programme fresh, exciting, relaxed, and most importantly fun!
To help provide a balanced programme we have Programme Zones which split the whole programme into more manageable areas.
Each zone represents development areas in a young person’s life, and they also correspond to the 6 Challenge Awards.
We use many different methods which give the programme variety and range. We always aim to give our Beaver Scouts the opportunity to:
- Help others
- Go on visits
- Play games
- Make things
- Meet new people
- Act, sing and making music
- Listen to stories
- Follow themes
- Go outdoors
