About Beavers

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members, usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday. They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between seven years and six months and eight years six months.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.

There are over 1700 Beaver Scouts meeting in over 100 Colonies all across Norfolk running their own activity programmes weekly. Norfolk’s Beaver Scouts also have the opportunity to join in District and County Beaver Scout Programmes, ranging from Beaver Fun days to Beaver Sleepovers.

Sounds great! How can I join in?

To join the adventure, please get in touch with us to find your nearest Beaver Scout Colony. With over 100 across the county, there’s bound to be one for you!
