Beavers accept both boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old.


Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with their friends.

The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.  There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½.  It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.


The normal meeting place is our HQ “Gordon Hall”, on Lineside Way in Littlehampton. However throughout the year we will meet in various other locations depending on the activities we are doing.


Our Perseverance Colony meet on Mondays from 1730 to 1845 and the Triumph Colony on Wednesdays from 1700 to 1815.

Life after Beavers?

Beavers are expected to transfer to Cubs when they attain the age of 8 years. There is a transfer process which is supported with a Link Badge.
