Beavers (6-8yrs)

Beaver scouts are the youngest members in the scouting sections. As a beaver scout you will:

  • Play games
  • Learn to sing
  • Take part in trips/visits
  • Go on camps/sleepovers
  • Discover new skills
  • Get to know others
  • Learn about scouting.

Whilst taking part in all of the above, you will have the chance to earn activity badges and awards, some of which carry on through your scouting journey all the way up to explorers.

At 1st Hythe, we have two beaver colonies, meeting once a week.

  • Offshore Sailing
  • Gillwell 24

Our ESU is part of the wider explorer network in the district and is names Trident ESU.
