Beaver Uniform and Badges

Beavers should have a full uniform of a Beaver Scout sweatshirt, dark trousers and the group scarf.

There are also a number of optional items such as Scout activity trousers, Beaver polo shirt, Beaver baseball cap which are available from suppliers that can be worn when appropriate but these are not essential. Of these, the most useful is the Beaver polo shirt as there are many occasions that this can be worn instead of the sweatshirt.

During normal meetings, it is best to wear a tee-shirt (e.g. the Beaver polo shirt) under the sweatshirt to allow the sweatshirt to be taken off during activities.

The scarf, woggle and badges are supplied by the group as part of the investiture; the sweatshirt needs to be purchased by the Beaver.


For badges with several levels, such as participation awards and staged activity badges, only the highest numbered badge achieved should be worn on the uniform.

It is essential that every item of uniform is named to ensure lost property can be returned to the right owner.
