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.
