Beavers are the youngest members of our Scout Group. Every year, Beavers are recruited from Grades 1 & 2. We also welcome Prep students, provided one of the parents participates as a Scouter. 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 confidence to be themselves.
These activities are guided by the Beaver Scout’s Law, Promise and Motto:
Beaver Scout Law: “A Beaver has fun, works hard and helps his family and friends”
Beaver Scout Promise: “I promise to be kind and to help take care of the world”
Beaver Scout Motto: “Sharing, Sharing, Sharing.”
Our program runs from September 2022 to early June 2023, aligned with the CDNIS school year. Beavers meet on Saturdays (except for public holidays and school holidays) for 1.5 hours (starting at 9am) in the school. Outdoor or special meetings may run beyond normal meeting hours (e.g. 9am-12 noon). The family camps and family hikes are definitely the highlights of the Beaver year! Kids and parents love them! Parent support for the Beaver program is vital. We need parent volunteers on a regular basis as Scouters. All Beaver Scouters are dedicated volunteers who organize programs for the Beavers, on top of their day jobs. No special skills are required to join – it is your dedication that counts. Training will be provided. Our Scouters support each other with one common goal – to run a fun and interesting program for the Beavers! In addition, children of parents who become Scouters will have priority in joining the Beaver program in the event that we are over-subscribed (which we often are).
In response to COVID-19 or other unexpected circumstances where our normal operation is likely affected, our Group will observe specific Scouts Canada’s Safe Scouting Policies & Procedures. We also follow the relevant rules and requirements of the Hong Kong SAR Government. In addition, we take into consideration of those practices of CDNIS and the Scout Association of Hong Kong to ensure safe scouting for our youths. In such circumstances, we strive to conduct physical meetings whenever possible, but will opt for online meetings to continue with our program when it is not feasible to meet in person.
