Squirrels Logo

4 to 6 years

Friday 5pm to 6pm

Grow and learn your way through lots of different activities. Make new friends. Try new things. Have lots of fun along the way.

Being a Squirrel

Squirrels are young people aged 4 to 6 who get the opportunity to take their first step into being part of Scouts, helping everyone to get ready for the adventure of school too.

Activities and what you’ll get up to

Get an introduction to indoor and outdoor activities, have the opportunity to be creative, tell stories and play games. Become a Superhero, a Superchef or a Brilliant Builder! Squirrel Scouts do not have sleepovers, however, they are invited to some camps as daytime visitors so that they don’t miss out on the adventure!

Badges and Awards

Become an expert in something you love or try something shiny and new. From athletics and astronomy to photography and pioneering, there’s something for everyone.

If you are wondering where these all go on the uniform then click on the image to see the positions for the different types of badges. Some of these badges will continue to be on the uniform when moving on to Beavers.

More information about the badges available can be found on the Scout Website.
