Beavers is the first step in Scouting for future development of young people. It will seem that they have only just started before it will be time to ‘swim up’ to Cubs!

Beaver Scouts meet together as a colony in “Lodges” (small groups) which is run by a team of adult volunteers and helped by parent helpers.

They wear a turquoise sweatshirt, group neckerchief (scarf) and a woggle (which keeps their scarf together).

By making the Promise, an important act in Scouting and common to every section, a young person becomes a Member of the worldwide Movement;

The Beaver promise is:

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

The Motto for all members of the movement is:

Be Prepared
