Beavers

For 5-7 year olds

As of Sept. 2017 we are offering two Beaver Colonies. We will hold separate regular meetings but plan weekend and camping adventures together as one.

‘A’ Colony:  Mondays  6:15 – 7:30 p.m.
‘B’ Colony:  Mondays  4:30 – 5:45 p.m.

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 and 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 Scouters 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.

At 1st Cedar Hill we are proactively following the Canadian Path program. Some changes in the program are small, some are big, but all are great! The Canadian Path has been developed with the ages and stages of the youth in mind.  What could be better!

Beaver Scout Promise

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

Beaver Scout Law

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

Beaver Scout Motto

Sharing, Sharing, Sharing

Fees:

$215 annual fee plus additional camp and activity fees (many of which are subsidized by the Group’s Fundraising efforts – the more we raise, the more we can potentially draw from!)

Dues:

Beavers are asked to bring a coin each week to “feed Bucky”. This money is our petty cash fund for craft items and other minor expenses throughout the year.

Fundraising:

As a group we participate in three major fundraiser each year.  Apple Day, Scouts Popcorn sales and Christmas Tree sales.  All our youth are expected to participate in fundraising as it helps fund our programs locally and nationally. This means it keeps our costs down so we can focus on having fun!
