Beaver Scouts

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

Beavers loose at Chester Zoo
09/06/2019 By Matt Jones

Beavers Annual day trip took them to Chester Zoo! 

Beavers were loose at a Chester Zoo this weekend! Beavers from across Birkenhead Scouts went to Chester Zoo this weekend on their sleepover. 

Beavers were able to visit Chester Zoo to find out how they’re Preventing Extinction across the Globe! We know that it’s important to conserve our living world but we know that it’s even more important now than ever before! 

Our Beavers also learnt about prehistoric #Predators that once walked the Earth and had a great talk from one of the Zoo Rangers, Alex. 

Matt Jones, District Commissioner, said “Baden-Powell once said that we should leave the world a little better than we found it. We don’t always manage to do this but little steps do really change the world. We should always try our best to leave the world a little better and help Prevent Extinction!”
