Beavers (Age 5-7)
Fun and friendship is the cornerstone of the Beaver 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.
1st Elmira Beaver Colony meets Tuesdays at 6:30PM at Gale Presbyterian Church (10 Barnswallow Dr., Elmira). Please make sure to sign in and out your child. Also, please make sure there are 2 leaders present before leaving your child..
cub (Age 8-10)
With the Cub motto of “Do Your Best” front and centre, Cub Scouts are encouraged to try new and more challenging activities. Learning important first aid skills, paddling a canoe for the first time, or leading a game at camp will open the door for Cubs to try other adventures they never thought possible. Along the way, Cub Scouts learn how to take care of themselves and work as a team – and most importantly have a lot of fun!
Cubs also experience an exciting variety of other activities: including games and sports, model-building, campfire skits, hiking and outdoor skills. And like Beavers, Cubs enjoy their adventures with their friends.
