We help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it's most needed

Join our growing, curious, fun and playful Squirrels!


Squirrels uniform consists of a red sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to. 

Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means you can run around and get messy without ruining your other clothes. It makes you feel part of a team. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out. And it gives you a place to show off all the brilliant badges you earn.

You can often buy uniforms at local School Uniform shops or you can get it from the Official Scout Store.

The Squirrel Scout Promise

The Promise is an important part of Scouting. It reminds us how we should act, no matter what age we are or what we believe in.

Learn about moving on to Beavers with the Moving On song.
