Try new things. Make new friends. Joining Beavers is just the beginning of your big adventure.

For our youngest members, Beavers is all about having fun, making friends, and learning new skills. Beavers meet weekly to try out a huge range of activities, which might include science experiments, crafts, den building and more. We also go on day trips, sleepovers and camps, giving many Beavers a real adventure – their first night away from home!

Across the 7 Districts in South East Scotland, based on the 2021 Census, we have a total of 1,418 Beavers.

Beavers are boys and girls aged 6 and 7 who meet together to have fun, make friends and learn things.

Have you thought about becoming a Beaver Leader or Assistant Leader? We have lots of opportunities across the region.

“My son has learned lots of new skills, played outdoors with his friends safely and earned loads of badges, which have really

boosted his confidence.”

Lorna, Parent

“I love Beavers because I get to play with my friends and learn new things. I love the games, I like making things and I love to go
