The Beaver Program is for youth aged 5-7
Fun and friendship are the cornerstones of the Beaver program. Through an adventurous program of outdoor activities, creative play, music, and cooperative games, Beavers enjoy time with their friends (and meet new ones), learn how to get along within a group, and develop the confidence to be themselves. Beavers helps children learn basic social skills and gain self confidence.
Like all Scouting members, Beavers enjoy many outdoor adventures with their friends in the colony. Weekend events, 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.
Beavers are a vital part of the community, country and world in which they live. Visits to parks, power plants, fire and police stations thrill young Beavers and illustrate the many important facets of their community. Beaver activities stress cooperation and teamwork, and can involve the whole family.
Beavers meet in a group called a colony. The colony is split into smaller groups called lodges. There is one leader for every five Beavers.
Each Beaver learns a promise, law and motto to help guide their personal development.
I promise to love God and help take care of the world.
A Beaver has fun, works hard and helps his family and friends.
