Being a Beaver
When you join Beavers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know.
Badges & awards
Become an expert in something you love, or try something shiny and new. Completing Badges & Awards lets you do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
As well as enjoying plenty of adventures, being a Beaver is about exploring who you are and what you stand for. These are big ideas, and when you join the Colony, you’ll start thinking about them by making a promise. A promise is a set of words that mean something to you, which you try to follow everyday.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe and open to all. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
Moving up to Cubs
Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Beavers and embrace your next big adventure.
