Fun and friendship is the cornerstone of the Beaver Scouts program.
Beaver Scouts opens the door for your child to discover the world. It is filled with a little bit of everything – outdoor activities, games, music and sports. Along the way, Beaver Scouts meet new friends, learn cooperation and teamwork and develop self-confidence.
Beaver Scouts are welcomed into a group of energetic boys and girls just like them. They will meet with kind and caring leaders that will help them with anything they need to know about being a good Scout. They will feel respected and appreciated for their own uniqueness, and encouraged to bring all they can to their group and activities.
The Beaver Scout program is built around a variety of activities that include:
- Nature walks and hikes
- Picnics and family-based camping
- Tree planting
- Games and sports
- Storytelling and playacting
- Spiritual fellowship

Why You Should Make Your Child a Beaver Scout
Scouting is ideal for kids because it exposes them to different challenges and activities that can make them learn a lot of things. It also shows them the importance of being active in the community. By being a scout, children are more likely to grow responsibly and maturely since they are taught lessons that can be later used in life.
Amazingly, there are several age groups for scouts. Participants are divided into groups and clusters of people of the same age. That way, the activities assigned for each one will be appropriate to what they can do and what they can develop.
One of the age brackets that we love here at London Scouts is the Beaver scouts. With their charming energy and their amazing enthusiasm when it comes to activities, these scouts are really fun to play with.
Although they may be young, these children are already smart enough to follow instructions that are being given to them. With that, we highly encourage parents to let their children aged six to eight join the Beavers. With that, here are some reasons why we think your children should join too!
It is open to all genders
One great thing about Beavers is that they are not gender-exclusive. With that, young boys and girls can learn how to interact with each other. By working together, these children will realize that all of their activities can be accomplished, regardless of what gender they may be.
It promotes teamwork
Although there may be individual activities that are made, there are actually more group activities for these young Beavers. With that, they will already learn the importance of teamwork. By achieving their tasks and overcoming the challenges, they will realize that things can be made better if they all work together.
It fosters friendship
By interacting with other Beavers, our child will learn how to make friends along the way. These bonds can also be strengthened if your child participates in the activities where their bond with the other children whom they have been grouped with.
It establishes self-confidence
By being a Beaver, your children will learn how to trust themselves as they work with the other children. During their camps and their sleepovers, your children will also develop their problem-solving skills as they learn how to brainstorm with their peers. That way, they will learn how to be more confident about themselves.
It is fun
Aside from making your children be more independent and adventurous, making them a part of the Beavers also allows them to have fun. By allowing them to be a part of the said groups of young scouts, we can guarantee that their experience will be something that they will look back on, even when they grow older.
With that, we highly recommend that you let your children be a part of the Beavers!
