1st / 3rd Houghton Regis Scout Group
The Beaver Section Logo


Beavers are our youngest members of the Group and are aged from 5 3/4 to 8. We meet every Thursday during term time for around an hour and 15 minutes. Beavers 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.


During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a range of challenge awards and badges available that Beaver Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.
