Scouting at Highbury has been offering young people fun, adventure and opportunity for over one hundred years.

However, it is the young people of today and tomorrow we who are the most important to us, girls and boys. Those of us who volunteer have great fun whilst enabling, teaching and guiding these young people to achieve new things, explore more of the world and have great fun.

Beaver Scouts

Beaver Scouts are our youngest members being 6 to 8 years old. They take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.

Highbury Beavers meet on Saturdays about twice a month. For more details about this section you may contact the Beaver Scout Leaders using
