Tuesday Beavers at Captain Michael Vandenbos Public School

The children will arrive to a gathering game based on the Beaver Scout motto of “Sharing, Sharing, Sharing”. The youth will them form a circle called the Beaver lodge. Brown Beaver (a stuff toy) will sit in the centre and the Beavers will feed him wood chips they obtained from the Scouter when they pass in their weekly dues.
The program usually includes some non-competitive games, crafts, stories, and fun activities.
At the end of the evening, the Beavers form “riverbanks” and recite a standard closing.
On scheduled nights, Beavers will be visiting places of interest, hiking at Heber Down Conservation Area and having visitors come into the gymnasium.
