 Beaver Scouts (Ages 5-7)


Fun and friendship is the cornerstone of the Beaver Scouts 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, 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.


The Beaver Scout program is built around a variety of activities that include: 

  • Nature walks and hikes

  • Picnics and camping 

  • Outdoor skills

  • Leadership opportunities

  • Youth-led adventures

  • Crafts and games

  • Community service

BEAVER SCOUT PROMISE: I promise to be kind and help take care of the world.

BEAVER SCOUT LAW: A Beaver has fun, works hard, and helps their family and friends.

BEAVER SCOUT MOTTO: Sharing, Sharing, Sharing!

The Outdoor Adventure Skills program is an invitation for Scouts to try something new—to be outside more, testing themselves with progressive challenges while remaining within their capabilities to stay safe. In short, it’s about having life-changing experiences.

Each Outdoor Adventure Skills pathway is divided into nine stages with a badge awarded for each stage; however, the purpose of the OAS program is not the badge. Rather, the Outdoor Adventure Skills should be seen as tools to support the Plan-Do-Review process—for example, organizing an activity that matches the level of skills that the participants have, or evaluating the amount of growth a person experienced in a particular skill set they wanted to expand on.


Personal Achievement badges are a way to try something new or learn more about something you already know. In Beavers, we learn all about the Pond framework within the Canadian Path program, and the many friends that help us on our journey. As we work on our adventures, we collect badges, and there are 16 different badges for you to work towards with your imagination as the only limit!

Which badge will you pick to plan your adventures? Let's meet our Pond friends and learn about the badges!


Brown Tail (Kindergarten) Represents the colour for the beaver fur; responsibility to take care of the world. 


Blue Tail (Grade 1) Represents the sky and water and the immense opportunities to explore.


White Tail (Grade 2) Represents the moon and the stars that give us light and help us find our way through the darkness of the night. The White Tails guide the colony as leaders.


The coloured tail is pinned onto the Beaver’s hat. At the end of the year, each Beaver receives a Personal Progression Badge (PAB) that is worn on their Beaver uniform.

North Star Award
This very special top section award is awarded to White Tail Beavers who have completed a personal progression review, five OAS badges, five community service hours, one community project that is personally challenging, and a final review by the White Tail Council and Scouters.

Scouter Tobiah (Hawkeye)

Since 2013, Tobiah has been volunteering with 15th Lethbridge as a Scouter, but he has been involved with summer camps for over thirty years as a camper, camp counselor, and counselor trainer. Tobiah has tons of experience and ideas about exploring nature, camping, music, and art- his campfire songs are quite a spectacle! Tobiah is also a teacher, and he has taught learners of all levels from kindergarten to adults. He works for Alberta Health Services creating online learning. Fun facts: Hawkeye plays the guitar and banjo, and even makes his own cigar box guitars! He is an avid geocacher. Tobiah loves to search for travel bugs and log caches while travelling with his boys. They have even planted a couple geocaches of their own around Lethbridge.

Scouter Travis (Malak)

Scouter Malic (Travis), joined 15th Lethbridge Beaver colony in 2021 with his son, becoming a leader in 2022. Scouter Malic has a childhood history with the Ranchlands 186 Scout group in Calgary and has many fond memories with the scout group, including CJ ‘01 in PEI. Scouter Malic makes his career as a technician in the heavy truck industry. His hobbies include horses, fishing and just about anything in the great outdoors as welling as spending quality time with family and friends

Scouter Steven (Rusty)

Steven started as a 1st year Beaver in the Beddington 199th group as a child and moved all the way through Venturers with the group. He has earned the Chief Scout award, which is the highest award that can be achieved at the Scout level in Scouts Canada. Steven has traveled overseas with Scouts, attended CJ97 in Thunder Bay, done all kinds of outdoor camping activities, slept in tents in minus -39 degree weather, as well as other unique outdoor Scouting activities. Scouter Rusty has been waiting for his first son to be old enough for Beavers and is now a first year volunteer Scouter. He is looking forward to helping Beavers have life-long memories in Scouting. 

Scouter Susan (Rainbow)

Susan is new to Scouting, joining the 15th Lethbridge Beavers in Fall 2022; however, she was previously involved with its sister organization, the Girl Guides of Canada, for over 20 years. Now that she has two sons, she is exploring Scouting with them. Susan is passionate about sharing new ideas and experiences and encouraging young people to challenge and improve themselves. That’s a big part of what led her to teach chemistry at the University of Lethbridge, where she recently won the UofL Excellence in Teaching Award. In her spare time, Susan loves board games, baking and musical theatre. And if you’re ever in need of a silly song, she probably knows just the right one.

Scouter Richard (Ringtail)

Richard is new to scouting, beginning when his son started in the fall of 2022. He believes that this will be a good bonding experience that will build lasting  memories with his son. The skills that will be taught are foundational to a well rounded human. In addition to volunteering with the 15th Lethbridge Beavers, he also started to volunteer at the YMCA, in hopes to give back to the community. He works as a Project Manager, and in his spare time enjoys reading, woodworking, board games, musicals, and family time.
