Make friends and try new indoor and outdoor activities

Who are Beavers?

Beavers are the youngest section of scouting and are young people aged 6 to 8 who:

  • Have a sense of adventure and go on fun adventures.
  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference in their own communities and beyond.

Our Beaver Colony meets every Thursday evening during term time from 5:15 pm – 6:15 pm at our HQ

What do Beavers get up to?

Being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways.

Beavers partake in a wide and exciting range of different activities (indoors & outdoors) as well as going on trips, days out, sleepovers, camps (for many the first time!), playing games, helping others and making friends. Their achievements and all their activities are recognised through a range of badges and challenge awards. We also join in Beaver activities arranged within the Group, Reigate District and Surrey County.

Many of our Beavers also achieve the Chief Scouts Bronze Award – the highest award a Beaver Scout can achieve, before progressing into the Cub section.

The Beaver Scout Promise

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.

Once new starters have learned the Promise and attended a few weeks of Beavers they are asked to get a uniform before being formally invested into the Scouting Movement. Parents are invited to attend this special ceremony.

There are several variations of the Beaver Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting, all the variations are available here. But the most common one used is the following:

Be Prepared


A uniform is required in Beaver Scouts. More information on this can be found in the member’s handbook.
