Beaver Program

The philosophy underpinning the programme is that every Beaver Scout should participate in a Balanced Programme over a period of time.

The emphasis has shifted from a badge and award driven culture to one that ensures that all young people experience a quality programme covering a wide range of subjects.

To help, the Balanced Programme is divided into a number of Programme Zones, methods and underlying ways of working.

Program Zones

Programme Zones split the whole programme into manageable areas. Each Zone represents a different development area in a young person's life. There are six Programme Zones in Beaver Scouting. They are:

  • Beliefs and Attitudes
  • Community Fitness
  • Creative
  • Global
  • Outdoor
  • Adventure

    Methods of Delivery

    These Zones are delivered using 12 methods, which give the programme variety and range. Sometimes one method will be more suitable than another. On occasions you may use a number of methods within the same activity. So you should give your Beaver Scouts opportunities to:

  • Help others
  • Play games
  • Explore their world
  • Undertake prayer and worship
  • Listen to stories
  • Follow themes
  • Go on visits
  • Make things
  • Meet new people
  • Act, sing and make music
  • Chat
  • Go outdoors
