Beavers are the first section of the Scouting movement. Activities, trips and making friends are all part of what makes Beavers so much fun. As well as earning activity badges, many Beavers Scouts go on camps and sleepovers, often for the first time. Activities include:

  • Being creative – making things and singing
  • Playing games
  • Going on visits and investigating nature
  • Learning about themselves
  • Getting to know other people
  • Discovering science, nature and technology
  • Exploring the natural and man-made world
  • Caring – responding to the needs of others, the local and international community

“The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn’t even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn’t matter too much about the weather”.
