Beavers (Age 5-7)

[ Jump to: MeetingsUniform | Promise, Law & Motto | Badges | Camping ]

Fun and friendship is the cornerstone of the Beaver Scouts program.

Beaver Scouts opens the door for your child to discover the world. It is filled with a little bit of everything – outdoor activities, games, music and sports. Along the way, Beaver Scouts meet new friends, learn cooperation and teamwork and develop self-confidence.

Beaver Scouts are welcomed into a group of energetic boys and girls just like them. They will meet with kind and caring leaders that will help them with anything they need to know about being a good Scout. They will feel respected and appreciated for their own uniqueness, and encouraged to bring all they can to their group and activities.

Beaver Scouts share many outdoor adventures with their friends in the colony. Nature walks, short hikes, tree plantings and family sleepovers give Beavers a taste of outdoor fun. Through these activities, Beavers develop an appreciation and a sense of caring for the environment.

Badges are a new and exciting part of the Beaver experience. If you Beaver has an interest in badge work, they may be worked on during their own time and presented at any meeting. For badge guidelines, click: Personal Achievement Badges or Outdoor Adventure Skills.



Who says Beavers can’t go camping? We have an exciting year planned that is going to be lots of fun and a big part of this fun will be the camps, sleepovers, and weekend events.  They provide the Beavers great opportunities to expand their horizon and maybe experience their first camp. We strongly encourage all youth to give it a try.  With many events, parents are welcome to join. Please ask a Scouter if you are interested.

All youth must have appropriate outdoor clothing (good rain jacket and boots and good snow pants, hat, water proof gloves and jacket for winter) and a labelled re-useable water bottle.  Campers will need a duffle bag or large back pack which they can pack all their stuff in (sleeping bag can be separate).  No garbage bags please.

Camp details including costs and equipment check lists are posted as each camp approaches.
