Beavers
(5-7 Years)

Discover New Things!

Beaver Scouts experience diverse activities and a world of new adventures. Through nature walks, short hikes, tree planting, games, crafts and family events, Beaver Scouts gain valuable social skills while making new friends along the way. From camping to hiking and games galore, Beaver Scouts develop a respect for nature and others while exploring the world around them.

Beaver Scouts take part in activities such as nature walks, tree-planting, campfires, and (when Scouts Canada allows it again) sleep overs and camps.


Personal Achievement Badges

Working on Personal Progression Badges allow youth to further develop individual interests and skills, allowing their development along The Canadian Path to be recognized as part of their growth and progression. Personal Achievement Badges are section-specific and do not continue with the youth from one Section to the next.

Outdoor Adventure
Skills

These are achieved in stages and continue with youth from one Section to the next. They mark progress in gaining skills with camping, hiking, aquatics, winter activities, and more.

Only the highest stage earned in any particular skill area is worn on the uniform.

The North Star
Award

Beaver Scouts can pursue the North Star Award by completing Personal Progression within their Colony; embarking on the Northern Lights Quest to lead or contribute to projects of personal significance that impact their community; and by attaining the specified number of Outdoor Adventure Skills stages.
