The Beaver Section

Beavers enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.

The Beavers are for young people aged between 6 and 8 years. The 6th Northwood Colony meets on a Tuesday.

Upcoming events

During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers.

Our Colony runs a full program each academic term with camps and events spread throughout.

Badges & Awards

Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognize their achievements.

Activity badges allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests. Whereas challenge badges involve accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community.
