Cheshire Beaver Scouts
Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure.
Beavers are 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, Cubs, between 8 and 8.5 years old.
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, often Scout centres.

Beaver Scouts 35th Anniversary
Join the party!
Beaver Scouts celebrate their 35th Anniversary this year! Until the Easter holidays in April 2022, we are giving colonies in Cheshire the chance to join us in celebrating the 35th year of Beaver Scouts. To kick off the birthday celebration, we are inviting Beavers and leaders to take part in completing 35 challenges over the next seven months.
3, 2, 1… Blast off!
The countdown to Cheshire’s space-themed International Jamboree has begun! Run ever four years, Chamboree attracts over 5,000 Scouts and Guides from all over Cheshire. Tatton showground buzzes with excitement and activity and Explorer Scouts get to camp on their own separate subcamp and engage in a jam-packed week of activities, events and challenges.
The Chamboree Programme Team have put some activities together to get you excited for the big event! We’ve recommended the age range suitability of an activity, but don’t hesitate to check out the activities and their suitability for your programme! To help leaders we’ve provided links to the Scout & Guide badges.
If you’ve got any more ideas to offer, we’d love to hear from you. Share them by emailing our Chamboree Programme Team.
Why not share your photos & videos with us! @Chamboree #Chambonauts
15th – 17th October 2021
JOTA-JOTI is about the 21st century skills you can learn in Scouting and the values of global citizenship. The event is open to Scouts around the world, enabling young people to connect and communicate with each other using the Internet and amateur radio. JOTA-JOTI engages youth in educational activities that build teamwork, cross-cultural understanding and skills for the future.
Cheshire Scouts invite you to take part in this special event this October. Scouting is a global movement and we welcome as many Scouts as possible to join us in this unique international discovery weekend. We have prepared an activity pack, full of ideas and things to consider in order for you to host your very own event either at home for yourself or with a local Colony, Pack, Troop, Unit, Group or District! We recommend seeking the support of your local ADC and District Commissioner if setting up a group event. But why not let the county team know too and we can visit during the weekend!
Participation in the event will count towards young people’s award and badge work.
