Beaver UniformBackground:

Beavers began in the early 80s and were such a success that they officially became Beaver Scouts in 1986. Beavers belong to a Colony of 6 – 8 year olds. In the United Kingdom, Beaver Scouts wear a turquoise sweatshirt and Group Scarf, with optional navy activity trousers and turquoise t-shirt. The new programme consists of 5 zones: Getting to Know Other People; Learning About Yourself; Exploring the World Around Us; Discovering Creativity and Practical Skills; and Discovering Beliefs and Attitudes. Theses zones are delivered by 12 methods: Help others; Go on visits; Play games; Make things; Explore their world; Meet new people; Act, sing and make music; Listen to stories; Prayer and worship; Chat; Follow themes; and Go outdoors. Beavers can now gain Challenge and Activity badges as a reward for their enthusiastic joining in.
