Programme and Adventure > Beaver Scouts
'The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn't even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn't matter too much about the weather.'
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½ For further information, including information on further flexibility for young people with special needs, please refer to POR rules 3.7i and 3.11.
