In October 1982, The Scout Association introduced 'Beavers' for its six to eight year old boys in response to a growing demand within the Movement. 

In April 1986, they became a recognised training Section and took the title of Beaver Scouts. From 1991, girls could also become Beaver Scouts. In the United Kingdom, Beaver Scouts wear a simple uniform consisting of a turquoise sweatshirt and Group Scarf (shown below). Beaver Scouts take part in a balanced programme and work towards Challenges and Activity Badges.

There are opportunities to learn about themselves: exploring their feelings and developing good habits of health and personal safety. 

They get to know people: finding out about those in their family, the family of Scouting, the local community and the wider world.

Beaver Scouts explore: discovering the science, nature and technology, exploring the natural and man-made world. Beaver Scouts care, growing in their love of their God and responding to the needs of others, the local community and the wider world. Their bright, colourful identity reflects their aim of ‘fun and friends’ and a positive experience at this stage often encourages young people to continue their journey through Scouting.
