Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between six and eight years old. They belong to 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, Cub Scouts, between seven years and six months and eight years six months.

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.

We meet each Wednesday at The South Holmwood Scout Centre (Behind the old South Holmwood School on the A24 going towards Dorking)
from 5.00pm to 6.15pm

There are games to play, things to make, people to meet, songs to sing, fields to explore and much much more.

As well as our weekly fun, we gained our Animal friend badge, made mothers day necklaces, went on the muddiest welly walk ever.
