Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends.

Children join a Beaver Scout Colony for many reasons. It might be they have heard great things from their friends about all the things our Colony gets up to every week. Perhaps parents or carers are keen for them to join. 

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old although, at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion, they can join as young as five and three quarters years old.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

At Oatlands Beavers, we are proud to offer a very active and exciting programme of activities to our members and due to the success of the programme, membership is in high demand.  Our Colony runs at maximum capacity all year round so we do have a waiting list.  We recommend registering your child with us as soon as possible. We usually meet every Wednesday evening during term term; all enquiries to
