Ardsley BeaversFor 6 and 7 year olds

Introduction to Beavers

Beavers are the youngest members of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.

The Pack is lead by a team of adult volunteers, who aim to run a varied programme with the emphasis on having fun.


Beaver Challenge Awards

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of tasks within the Colony or community. There are 7 challenge badges across a number of themes, leading to the Chief Scout's Bronze Award, which is the highest award in Beavers.

Beaver Activities

During their time in the Colony, Beavers get a chance to try lots of different activities, with the emphasis on having fun, making friends, and exploring the world around them. Beavers get to go on trips and days out, and they will also get chance to taking part in a sleepover, which for many is their first Nights Away experience.

Beaver Activity Badges

There are 12 activity badges available to Beavers, plus a further 6 staged activity badges which can be earned in any section. Activity badges reward Beavers for pursuing existing hobbies, such as learning an instrument, and try all kinds of new activities with their Colony.

Joining Beavers

Young people normally join Beavers at 6 years old. Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).



Sundown Adventureland

After a slightly early start on Sunday morning, a traffic jam, and all the kids screaming for the leaders to stop singing along to the radio, we managed to arrive in one piece at Sundown Adventure Land.

As 8 excitable Beavers and 4 Leaders (we were just as excited, but shh) piled off of the minibus armed with sun cream, bottles of water and our trusty mascot, our adventure was just about to begin.
