Beavers are our second section, and meet for an hour per week either on a Wednesday or a Thursday. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with their friends.

Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.


During their time in the Colony, Beaver Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on sleepovers. Participation, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Beaver Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

Further information about badges and awards for the Beaver section can be found here.

The Beaver Scout Promise

There are a number of variations of the Beaver Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting. These can be found here.

Unless we are requested otherwise, we tend to use this promise:

  • I promise to do my best and to be kind and helpful and to love God


Beaver uniform consists of a blue sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and a coloured scarf or 'necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to.

While our local Scout shop is closed, a sweatshirt, polo shirt, trousers and belt can be purchased online at either of these sites:

The Scout Store or The Glasgow Scout Shop

We also sell second hand uniform for those that request it.

The location for Beaver badges on the uniform can be found here.
