Beaver Scout activities are a combination of learning and having fun. They learn about themselves and how to look after themselves, they get to know people from their local community. They find out about life in other countries and explore through organised activities. They care by helping those around them.

Scouting is a uniformed organisation and like all other sections Beavers wear a uniform that tells everyone they are a Beaver Scout.  For instance, people can tell what Colony you belong to by looking at the colour of your scarf.

The Aim of Scouting in Balfron is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the movement and is open to 6 and 8 year olds who like having fun and making friends. Beaver Scouts usually meet once a week as a "Colony". Like all other sections the Colony is run by trained, voluntary leaders and helpers. Many of these are parents of Beaver Scouts.
Beaver Scouting is about:

  • having fun
  • making friends
  • keeping the Promise
  • sharing
  • making progress
  • using a variety of groupings


Using a variety of methods, Beaver Scouts are guided to:
  • learn about themselves
  • get to know people
  • explore
  • care
  • be creative



Leaders are encouraged to approach each of these areas in a variety of ways by including activities sometimes close to the Beaver Scouts' own experiences, sometimes based in the local community and sometimes introducing them to issues in the wider world.
