Beaver Balanced Programme


The philosophy underpinning the Programme is that every Scout should participate in a Balanced Programme over a period of time.

In Scouting, the word Programme has a wide interpretation. The Programme is not just about the activities that Scouts can take part in (almost anything from abseiling to zorbing). It is also how we do these activities (the Methods) and our motivation in doing them (values deriving from the Scout Promise). Every time we plan an activity for our Scouts we should also consider how we might organise the activity and why we are doing it.

What we offer to young people in the Scout section is a Balanced Programme; a range of activities, events and experiences built around six Programme Zones.

You balance the programme in the same way you might balance a diet, by simply ensuring that over a given period (a month or a term for example) that there is something from each zone in the Programme.
