Beavers

Fun & friendship
for 6 and 7 year olds

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They meet weekly, on Wednesdays, to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.
