Beaver Scouts

For boys and girls 5 to 7 years of age.

The Beaver Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging children to feel good about themselves, their friends and family, God, and nature. Beavers helps children learn basic social skills and gain self confidence. The Beaver Scout program promotes activities that encourage children to:
  • Find examples of their own spiritual beliefs
  • Experience and express love and joy
  • Be healthy and have good feelings about themselves
  • Develop a sense of belonging and sharing in small group activities
  • Develop a sense of cooperation through non-competitive activities

Beavers Uniform The Beaver Scout program is built around a lively variety of games, crafts, music, storytelling, playacting, spiritual fellowship, and the outdoors. Beaver activities stress cooperation and teamwork, and can involve the whole family.

The outdoors is an essential part of the Beaver Scout program. Weekend events, picnics, short nature hikes, and family based camping opportunities round out the Beaver experience.

Beaver Scouts meet in a group called a Colony. The Colony is split into smaller groups called Lodges. There is one leader for every eight Beaver Scouts. Each Beaver Scout learns a promise, law, and motto to help guide their personal development.

Beaver Scout Promise:
I promise to love God
and help take care of the world.

Beaver Scout Law:
A Beaver has fun, works hard
and helps his family and friends.

Beaver Scout Motto:
Sharing, Sharing, Sharing

Welcome to the Pond!

As Beaver Scouts, you get to discover your world by exploring a map of the Pond. Embark on adventures like camping, hiking, playing games and even having campfires—all the while making great new friends along the way!

Each symbolic area on the map provides an opportunity to plan, learn and review the six program areas of Scouting: Environment & Outdoors, Leadership, Active & Healthy Living, Citizenship, Creative Expression and Beliefs & Values. By brainstorming with your Beaver Lodge or Colony, you will discuss what kinds of adventures to explore in each different place at the Pond. For example, you may want to visit Hawkeye’s Campfire on the map, which calls for planning a campfire and special ceremony; or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at Echo’s Mountain, which involves an Outdoor Adventure Skills activity.

Beavers are a creative bunch, and you will love sharing ideas and learning with your friends!
