Thank A Scouter!
Help Wanted! - We
are always looking help within our group. We would love to have some
new leaders in all our sections (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts). Our section
leaders also get together the first Thursday every month for a planning
meeting, and our Group Committee could also use new members. If you
want to get a bit more involved, you can contact our registrar
- If you are impressed by the job any of our leaders are doing, submit a THANKS on the Scouts Canada website
- Our Council is 'Voyageur' (from the drop down), our Area is 'Heritage', and our group is '72nd Ottawa'
- It's a way for parents to recognize our fine Scouters!
What are Beavers? Beavers
are active youth, boys and girls, aged 5-7 years. Our
Colony is lead by some terrific adult volunteers, helped by
some great parents, chartered by Scouts Canada, and sponsored by St Mark's Anglican Church
(for over 40 years!) We meet Tuesday nights, from 6:30 pm
to 7:30 pm in the gym at St Rita's School, across the street
from the church, near the corner of Fisher and Inverness. If you have
any questions please email us.
What do we do?
Beavers (boys and girls ages 5-7)
Fun and friendship are the cornerstones of the Beaver program.
Through an adventurous program of outdoor activities, creative
play, music, and cooperative games, Beavers enjoy time with their
friends (and meet new ones), learn how to get along within a group, and
develop the confidence to be themselves. Beavers share many
outdoor adventures with their friends in the colony. Nature
walks, short hikes, tree plantings and family sleepovers give Beavers a
taste of outdoor fun. Through these activities, Beavers develop
an appreciation and a sense of caring for the environment.
Beavers are a vital part of the community, country and world in which
they live. Visits to parks, power plants, fire and police
stations thrill young Beavers and illustrate the many important
facets of their community. Want more info? Check out Scout's Canada website
