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.

Scouts Canada Youth Protection



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.
