Beavers is the youngest section in scouting. They are aged between 6 and 8 years old.

The Dittons has two Beaver Colonies:

Toronto and Montreal
Toronto meets Thursdays between 17:00 and 18:30
Montreal meets Wednesday between 16.45 and 18.15


  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, on their own doorstops and beyond

Every week, they gather in groups called Beaver Colonies to hop, skip and jump their way through lots of different games and activities. You can see what they have been up to below…

  • Scouting and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    You will have heard the government advice today regarding stopping non-essential contact with others and stop unnecessary travel.  Following this advice the guidance from Esher District Scouts is to suspend all meetings until Easter.
    We are therefore ceasing meetings from this week until after the Easter break and will be in touch to confirm the plans after this.
    The district and The Dittons are investigating ways in which we can facilitate meetings virtually.

    Hope you all have a great (if quiet) Easter.

    Kind Regards,

    Suzan Baker

    Group Scout Leader
