Join the adventure!




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 eight 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.
The Beavers meet  Monday evenings in the Scout hut between 6 pm and 7 pm.

Our Promise:

Scouting is different to many organisations/clubs as it requires the Beavers to make a promise. Making the Promise is the most important act in Scouting and is common to every Section. Scouting has a special ceremony for making the Promise called Investiture or being invested. When a young person makes their Promise they receive their Group Scarf, The Membership Award and are welcomed as a new Member into the Scout family.The wording for the Beaver promise is fairly simple. It is:
I promise to do my best,
To be kind and helpful,
And to love God.

Different wordings of the promise is available for those of a different faith or those who may not want to use the word ”God” and for those of special circumstances and needs. By making the scout promise they become part of the worldwide movement of being a scout.

The Beaver Scout Motto:

Be Prepared


Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt. They also wear a scarf/neckerchief which varies in colour from Scout Group to Scout Group ( At 21st Maidenhead our colours are red with white stripes). They also have a woggle, to keep their scarf up. Traditionally all Beaver Scouts wear a maroon coloured woggle, but they may also wear a woggle of the colour of the Lodge they are in. Here is a diagram of where their badges should go on their uniform:
