Children may join Beavers when they are 6 years old and remain in the section until they are 8.
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family and the children undertake a wide variety of activities based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and most importantly, making new friends. They also work for badges.
Whenever possible we also offer the children the chance to camp with a parent to see at first hand what happens when the older children go to camp.
We currently have two colonies:
- Lark - Thu 6.00-7.15pm
- Gipping - Fri 6.00-7.15pm
We have a waiting list and a separate contact for this. Please click the link below for details of how to join as a Beaver.

OSM provides you with details of the Beaver programme and any events you can/are attending.
When logged into OSM - select the section you wish to view the events for ie '1st Kesgrave Beavers- Lark'. NB you may only be registered in one section so you will not see any choices.
Then select 'Events' or 'Programme'.
If there are event entries under either of these options then you will see them.
