Beavers are our youngest members. 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.

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾ and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.

We have two Beaver Colonies:

Swallow Beavers – We meet on a Monday between 6:00PM and 7:15PM

Amazon Beavers – We meet on a Thursday between 5:45PM and 7:00PM

If you would like to enrol your child, simply Contact Us and one of our leaders will respond.
