Where Beavers live
Beavers have a special place where they meet each week. It's a mystical place called the "Pond," where you live in a "Colony," and join a small group called a "Lodge," with other Beavers just like you!
Beaver Tails and Symbols
When you join the "Lodge," you get your very own symbol, to attach to the pocket of your vest. Every fall you get to make a new tail to wear on your hat. The tail changes colours as you get older. Just before you swim up to Cubs, you wear the "White Tail" with the "Magic Light" symbol.
When you learn your Law and Promise, you can become an Eager Beaver, during a special ceremony with all your leaders and friends.
I promise to love God and help take care of the world.
A Beaver has fun, works hard and helps his family and friends.
Sharing, Sharing, Sharing
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.
A "tail slap" opens every meeting. Your leader will help you start each meeting this way.
This is one way to join with your friends - you stand side-by-side in two wavy lines, just as if you were standing along the river bank.
The Beaver uniform is blue and brown. These colours symbolize colours of nature; brown for the earth and the Beaver's fur coat and blue for the clear sky and the fresh sparkling water.
A Beaver should be taught at the outset to respect his uniform and to wear it proudly. The Beaver should be encouraged to wear the full uniform after investiture. Our Colony requires that a full uniform be worn by all members as shown below:
