Squirrel Scout Section
Squirrels meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:45pm until 6:45pm.
The Squirrel section is unique to Northern Ireland and as such is not a recognised part of the overall Scout family outside of Northern Ireland. It is a feeder organisation to the Scout Movement in Northern Ireland. Squirrel Scouts are young people aged 4 or 5 years old. The Northern Ireland Squirrel Association is affiliated to the Northern Ireland Scout Council which is part of The Scout Association and it is run under the same rules as the other Scout sections.

Beaver Scout Section
Beavers meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:45pm until 7:45pm.
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends. The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 5¾, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.
