Welcome to Beavers

Bring on the adventure

Welcome to Another Magical Year!

Beavers (boys and girls ages 5 - 7)

You'll have lots of fun in your "Colony," sharing games, crafts, and plenty of outdoor adventures with your new friends.

Where Beavers live

Beavers have a special place where they meet each week. It's a mystical place called the "Pond," where you live in a "Colony," and join a small group called a "Lodge," with other Beavers just like you!

Beaver Tails and Symbols

When you join the "Lodge," you get your very own symbol, to attach to the pocket of your vest. Every fall you get to make a new tail to wear on your hat. The tail changes colours as you get older. Just before you swim up to Cubs, you wear the "White Tail" with the "Magic Light" symbol.

Eager Beavers

When you learn your Law and Promise, you can become an Eager Beaver, during a special ceremony with all your leaders and friends.

Bring on the adventure

Beaver Promise:

I promise to love God and help take care of the world.

Beaver Law:

A Beaver has fun, works hard and helps family and friends.

Beaver Motto:

Sharing, Sharing, Sharing

Beaver Salute

A Beaver salute is a special sign of greeting. To make it, just bend your two front fingers, to look like the two front teeth of a real beaver.

River Banks

This is one way to join with your friends - you stand side-by-side in two wavy lines, just as if you were standing along the river bank.

Tail Slap

A "tail slap" opens every meeting. Your leader will help you start each meeting this way.

Here's a story just for you!

Friends of the Forest (Chapter One)
Read how Big Brown Beaver names the Jones family so they can be true friends of the forest.

And here's a Beaver song...

Slapping Tails (sung to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

Bring on the adventure

Slapping tails, slapping tails
Beavers all are we,
Oh what fun we have each day
In our Beaver colony! (repeat once)

Working in our lodge
Sharing with our friends
Having fun and making crafts,
Till the meeting ends;

Then we leave for home
With the things we brought,
Carefully crossing at each street,
Till safely home we've got. It's great to be a Beaver!
