Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between 6 and 8 years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family.
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They meet together once a week in a Colony.
Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home.
We have eight Beaver Colonies in Redditch:
