Beaver Scouts, aged 6-8, belong to the youngest section of the scout movement and meet in Colonies. Their activities are based around “fun and friends.”

In their weekly meetings in the Group hut, in the local park, or at the local fire station Beaver Scouts work towards challenges and earn activity badges, such as the Explorer Badge, Air Activities Badge or the Animal Friend Badge

Beavers have sleep-overs, go for hikes, build stomp rockets, learn about the world, have paper boat races, play wide games.

The Beaver Colonies across the District meet for joint Sleepovers, St George’s Day Celebrations, and the County Beaver fun day’s – as well as many more events.

There is a new opportunity every week!

For more information, please contact the Assistant District Commissioner for Beavers.


Beavers are 6–8 years old.

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.

In Sandwell, we have a number of competitions and events that we do, including – but not limited to – Beavers Bangers, the handicraft competition, and an annual outing!
