Beaver Scouts are our youngest members; we meet for an hour and a quarter per week. Comprising boys and girls, they enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, new life skills and the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends. They will go on to develop these life-skills as they progress through the Scout Movement

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old. 


A Beaver section is called a "Colony". Hathersage Scout Group has two Beaver colonies. A colony is organised into smaller groups called "Lodges". Lodges can be used in a number of ways to facilitate the organisation of the Beaver Scout Colony.

The 1st Hathersage Beavers meet on Tuesday evenings at 6.15pm until 7.30pm. The 1st Bradwell Beaver Group, a satellite group of Hathersage, meet at 4.30pm until 5.30pm on Fridays.


During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a range of challenge awards and badges available that Beaver Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.

Beaver Uniform

Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt with a Group scarf (called a necker) and a maroon woggle. The locations of where the badges are positioned on the uniform is shown below:

The Beaver Scout Promise

I promise to do my best;

To be kind and helpful;

And to love God.

To be kind and helpful;

And to love my world.


The Beaver Meeting

Every week is different, but we always start our sessions with a welcome. For this, we "build a dam", when we all get into a circle and sing a short song, which goes:

Leader: 1,2,3, who are we?

Beavers: We are Beaver Scouts can't you see?

B, E, A, V, E, R, S, Hello!

After this we say our promise and then the session starts!


At the end of the session, we gather back into the circle (building a dam) and give out badges, notices, etc. We then say the Beaver Scout Promise again and end with another rhyme:

"Goodbye Beavers; goodbye friends; goodbye Beavers and

now our meeting ends, HEY!"

(Kicking legs into the air on "Hey")

Then it is home time...
