Have fun. Make new friends. Play games. Explore the outdoors.
Join in this amazing Scouting adventure!
We meet on Wednesdays, from 17.30-18.45
Beavers gives 6-8 year olds an opportunity to get stuck in, try new things, learn, explore and go on adventures.
What do Beavers get up to?
Each week, our Beaver colony meets up and our Beavers hop, skip and jump our way through all sorts of amazing games and activities. Learning new skills through play, getting messy and muddy, and having lots of fun along the way.
Being a Beaver is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Beavers explore the outdoors, go on visits, discover their world, help other people and play games. Beavers learn a range of practical skills such as cooking, first aid and fire lighting. Beavers make friends and work as team to solve problems and face challenges.

Meet our Beaver Leaders
Our amazing Beaver Scout Leaders work as a team to plan a balanced programme, supervise activities, share their skills and keep everyone safe. All our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible for everyone. Our Beaver leaders have special nicknames that you will find out about when you join us!

Badges and Awards
Being a Scout is all about giving new things a go and growing as a person and our programme is bursting at the seams with a variety of activities to engage all abilities. There are lots of activity badges to choose from, these give our Beavers a platform to show off their progress in the things they enjoy both at Beavers and at home.
The Challenge badges form the structure of our 2 year programme. By earning all six Beavers complete the coveted Chief Scout’s Bronze Award – the top badge for this section.
Joining Beavers at 6th Lichfield
Sounds fun? Yes it is! Everyone’s welcome here. If you have any questions about how we can make Beavers accessible to your young person, get in touch with us and we’ll have a chat. We can easily tweak things to make sure that everyone can join in the fun. We want to ensure your young person has the best possible experience in Scouts.
By joining Beavers, your young person becomes part of a worldwide movement, dedicated to helping them develop life skills they can use in the real world, while having fun, adventure and making new friends. We’re so confident that your young person will love Beavers that their first session is free of charge. After this, a membership fee will become due.
All you need to do is register your details on our waiting list. We’ll get in touch when your young person reaches the age to join and we have a space.
Updated October 2022
6th Lichfield is a very popular group and is full with no vacancies in any of our sections. If we are not able to take your child into our group, we will direct you to other local groups who also provide excellent scouting opportunities.
Once you’ve joined Beavers and settled in you’ll be earning lots of brilliant badges and need somewhere to put them. This is what our uniform looks like. We are proud to wear the famous red and white neckerchief and if ever you see this in Lichfield, it is one of our Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Leaders wearing it.
Invest in your young person’s future with us
Young people are amazing – we’re here to help them realise this.
Every week, we help our Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to get going, get thinking and get stuck into all sorts of things to help them get on their own two feet and give them real skills they'll be able to take into the real world. We call it our Skills For Life programme.
Our youth members get to try new things, master new skills, have fun and go on adventures, make new friends, learn about the world around them, help other people and help make a difference, both in the local community and in the wider world. With the right help and support, they can all be amazing.
Our volunteers are our everyday heroes that have empowered hundreds of young people that have walked through our doors to do all this and more.
That’s where you come in. Find out how you can help, in whatever way you can make work for you.
It doesn't matter if you weren't a Scout, or if you've never put a tent up in your life, and you don't need to be Bear Grylls. Our doors are open to people who share our values, regardless of ages, gender, race or background - people who help us make a positive change to our young people's lives.
So, if you're a tea-maker, tidy-upper, skill-sharer, minibus-driver, first-aider or a parent that wants to volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family, then perhaps being a volunteer at 6th Lichfield Scout Group will be perfect for you. Whatever skills you've got, and however much time you've got, there's something you can do that will help.
And if that sounds like fun to you, and if it sounds like it's worthwhile, there's a good reason:
