Beaver Prayer, Promise, Law & Chant

We’ve usually finished off our meetings on Tuesday nights with the Beaver prayer but we are going to include the promise, law & chant more in our meeting opening and closing ceremonies from now on.

Beavers will get to memorise these over time (most already know the prayer) but here they are for now as a reminder.

Adventure Skills – Air Activities Stage 1

airx_smallBeavers who were with the group last year achieved this badge and we hope that the new Beavers will also! In fact, we hope that those that already have achieved Stage 1 can help others do the same.

Here are the requirements for the Stage 1 badge

  • I can name all the things I know that can fly
  • I can show pictures of and be able to talk about different types of flying machines.
  • I can build a paper airplane from an A4 sheet that will fly, climb and turn.
  • I can discuss the features of an airport from a model or picture (Runway, Terminal and Control Tower).
  • I know how to be safe around aircraft
  • I have visited an airport

Getting Ready for a Beaver Hike

hillwalkingxx_small

As we get ready for the first hike of the new Scouts year with the Beaver group, here’s some info on what Beavers need to bring with them on the day:

  • Packed lunch & drink
  • Newspaper in a plastic bag to use as a seat
  • Wet gear – top & bottoms
  • Strong (ideally waterproof) shoes/boots
  • Change of clothes
  • Change of footwear

We’ll be doing a quick bag check on Tuesday (Sep 30) night in advance so please bring the packed bag that night.
