Being a Squirrel

When you join Squirrels, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people, and things. Here’s everything you need to know.

Awards

Completing awards challenges you to do more, learn more, and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.

Activity & Staged Badges

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.

Promise

As a values-based movement, we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best, This is slightly different depending on your faiths and beliefs. Find your version below. 

Moving up

Eventually, it’ll be time to say goodbye to Squirrels and explore your next big adventure with Beavers.

Uniform and Badge Placement

You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!

Adults have fun too

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
