Beaver Scouts

Beaver Scouts have fun. We play games, sing and act, take part in outdoor adventures, make things, investigate nature, learn about our communities, go on sleepovers and visit interesting places.

Through our activities the Beavers get to know about themselves, make friends, learn how to work with others, and find out about their part in the community and world around them.

The Beaver Scout Colony is the youngest section of the Scouting family for boys and girls between six and eight years old. Beavers work together during games and activities in small teams called Lodges, wear a uniform, make a Promise and have lots of badges and awards to earn.

Local Beaver Scout Colonies

There are thirteen Colonies across Kentdale District, in Cartmel, Hawkshead, Holme, Kendal, Kirby Lonsdale, Sedbergh, Sedgwick, Staveley, and Windermere. Each Colony not only serves the community where it is based, but also the towns and villages surrounding them. See our Scout Groups.
