Beaver Scouts are young people aged between six and eight years old. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. Beaver Scouts usually meet on one evening a week and also go on sleepovers and trips throughout the year.
The main programme areas for Beaver Scouts are:
• Outdoor and Adventure - see the photos from the Banham Zoo 25th Anniversary - Photo Gallery (registered members)
• Beliefs and Attitudes
2016 has seen the Beaver Scouts turn 30 and to mark this special year they took part in the Pigs Gone Wild sculpture trail. He belongs to the Beavers of Suffolk so you may see him around the county. For more information see.. Facebook-Pig in a Blanket
