Supporting Scouting in Newcastle upon Tyne

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

70 Beavers spent the weekend at Beamish, exploring the museum before the general public left at 4pm, then having a Victorian lesson in the school and playing with some historic toys in the Masonic Hall. After that, the Beavers went on a night hike, followed by a campfire in the street of the Town and hot chocolate in the café. The Beavers were all exhausted and were asleep by 10pm. The following day, the Beavers explored the rest of the museum.
