Beaver Scouts are boys and girls between 6 and 8 years of age. They meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony of up to 24 other youngsters.
1st Wellington currently has three Colonies which meet on different nights of the week, and there is usually flexibility on which Colony new members can join allowing parents to fit their youngsters meeting night around other commitments.
Beaver Scouting is all about having fun, making friends and learning new skills. Young people start to gain some independence while trying out many different activities and experiencing new adventures. The fun includes going on visits, making things, playing games and exploring the world around them.
Boys and girls aged 6 or 7 can become a Beaver Scouts and, around the time of their 8th birthday, Beavers 'swim up' to Cubs to continue on their path through Scouting.
