Beavers Scouting is for young people aged between 6 and 8 years of age.
Beaver Scouting is all about having fun, making friends and learning new skills. Young people start to gain some independence while trying out many different activities and experiencing new adventures. The fun includes going on visits, making things, playing games and exploring the world around them.
Beavers follow a Balanced Programme, earning Challenge Awards and Activity Badges, but the most important parts are joining in and trying their best.
The Scottish Beaver Challenge Award compliments the existing awards and can be earned by completing two challenges from each of the five sections. The badges are available from Scottish Headquarters, for 35p each.
Boys and girls aged 6 or 7 can become a Beaver Scouts and, around the time of their 8th birthday, Beavers 'swim up' to Cubs to continue on their path through Scouting.
