Since Beaver Scouts became a part of The Scout Association in 1986, it has been one of the quickest growing Sections. It currently has somewhere in the region of 100,000 members in 7,000 Colonies! The Beaver Scout Colony will meet weekly for an hour, but they will also have the chance to go on a residential experience every year and there might also be day trips away. Beaver Scouting is open to young people aged between six and eight years old who want to join and can make the Beaver Scout Promise.

Beavers take part in a wide range of activities. These include making things, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities provided by the leadership team.


The Beaver Scout Promise 

Making the Promise is the most important act in Scouting and is common to every Section. Scouting has a special ceremony for making the Promise called Investiture or being invested. When a young person makes their Promise they receive their Group Scarf, The Membership Award and are welcomed as a new Member into the Scout family. Beaver Scouts so not make their Promise until they have been in the Colony for a few weeks. Parents are invited to attend the investiture for which Beaver Scouts will need their uniform.

I promise to do my best

to be kind and helpful

and to love my God.
