Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion, for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends.

Beavers meet on Monday evenings at Barton St David Village Hall from 1815 to 1915.

A group of Beaver Scouts is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Promise and Motto

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law are presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices. 



Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (often called a necker) and a maroon woggle or one of another colour which identifies their Lodge or team.

The Beaver Scout Promise

I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.
