• Fun and friendship are the cornerstones of the Beaver Scouts program. Beaver Scouts opens the door for youth to discover the world. It is filled with a little bit of everything – outdoor activities, games, music and drama. Along the way, Beaver Scouts meet new friends, learn cooperation and teamwork, and develop self-confidence. A Beaver Section is called a “Colony”.

The map of the Pond for the Beaver Scout Section depicts the six Program Areas of the Canadian Path as inspired by the Beavers’ symbolic framework of Friends of the Forest. It also includes places that represent other activities that are part of the Beaver Scouts’ exploration of the Pond: campfires and special ceremonies at Hawkeye’s Campfire, hikes and nights at camp at Tic Tac’s Camp, work on Outdoor Adventure Skills at Echo’s Mountain, linking activities with other Sections at Akela’s Jungle and, for the White Tails, the tracking of their North Star Award Quest at Aurora’s Northern Lights.

Beaver Scouts have the opportunity to achieve 16 Personal Achievement badges, which are usually worked on as an individual. The Beaver Scouts, in consultation with a Scouter, plan three requirements to complete for each badge. They may choose either from the suggested requirements or they may define their own requirements that meet the educational objective. 

This set of awards allows the Beaver Scout to build Scouting skills that they will use along their journey from Beaver Scouts through to Rover Scouts. Each of the Outdoor Adventure Skills awards has nine stages. For Beaver Scouts, these are typically earned as a Colony. Outdoor Adventure Skill Awards are worn on the Beaver Scout uniform. This is meant to encourage the Beaver Scouts, under the mentorship of their Scouters, to pursue the Outdoor Adventure Skills Awards. Only the highest stage earned in each Outdoor Adventure Skill is worn.

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.

Beaver Scouts Uniform
The Beaver uniform is brown and blue. These colours symbolize nature: brown for the earth and the beaver’s fur coat, and blue for the clear sky and the fresh sparkling water.  

The Beaver uniform consists of a vest and hat which can be purchased at the Scout Shop on Baseline Road in Ottawa. The necker/scarf is provided by 1st Rockland.

Through the course of the year, our Colony will be involved with certain official outings (e.g., Bottle Drives, Popcorn campaign, Sleepovers, Camps and Beaverees). The Beavers who attend these events will be given a crest commemorating the day.  Apply these crests to their campfire blanket, do not attach them to their uniforms. (unless stated otherwise by colony leaders)

It is highly recommended that the Beaver’s name be printed on all items that are separate and may become lost (e.g., Hat, vest, neckerchief, woggle, campfire blanket).
