Beaver Scouts typically meet once a week during school terms. At meetings they play team games and learn Scouting skills like hiking, camping, knots, first aid, cooking and more.Beavers go on outdoor adventures – walks, treasure hunts, one or two night camps, litter-picking, parading on Saint Patrick’s Day, slumber parties in hostels or Scout Dens and more.
Children of this age love the outdoors. National events for Beavers include JamÓige – a camp held every four years for Beavers and Cubs. There are also events run at Scout County level and at Scout Province level.
The ratio of adults to Beavers is set accordingly. Scouters are all Garda Vetted and trained in Child Safeguarding.
Scouting Ireland is committed to Scouting safely at all ages.
