Stornoway Beaver Scouts - What are Beaver Scouts?
What are Beaver Scouts?
Beaver Scouts are young people 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, from three months before their eighth birthday 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.
If you want to take part in the fun of Beaver Scouting, either as a Beaver Scout, or as an Adult Leader or helper, we will give you further details of Stornoway Beavers if you fill in this form.
All members of the Scout Association make a promise, the words are easy to learn but it's really important that Beaver Scouts try to keep their promise everyday.
The Beaver Scout Promise is:
I promise to do my best To be kind and helpful And to love my God.
The Beaver Scout Motto is:
The Beavers work towards seven challenges, twelve activity badges, three partnership awards and ultimately hope to gain the Chief Scouts Bronze Award, which is the highest award available to Beaver Scouts.
