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.

The Beaver Challenge

Use the skills and teamwork of your teams to tackle the Inter-District Beaver Competition!

This year, June 15th 2024, get excited as we host our inter-district competition.

Compete against other groups in these mini activities of problem solving, team work and skill, all based on the Challenge badges completed through the section.

If you’ve got any more ideas to offer, we’d love to hear from you. Share them by emailing our  Programme Team.



Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
