1st Ormstown Beavers

Eager Beavers!

Welcome to a Magical Year at Beavers!

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 colors as you get older. Just before you swim up to Cubs, you wear the "White Tail" with the "Magic Light" symbol.

Eager Beavers

After you learn your Law and promise you too can become an Eager Beaver. You will receive your brown tail at a special ceremony with all your leaders and friends.

Beaver Promise:

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

Beaver Law:

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

Beaver Motto:

Sharing, Sharing, Sharing

Beaver Salute

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.

Tail Slap

A "tail slap" opens every meeting. Your leader will help you start each meeting this way.
