For any new Scouters who do not know what a Beaveree is – well – it is a big celebration – get together for all the Beaver Colonies from Victoria and across Vancouver Island get together for the day. We plan a day of community stations to come to the camp so the Beavers come and walk around with their colonies and can participate in various activities from canoeing, to playing with Lego to bouncing on a huge bouncy castle. There are anywhere from 25 to 30 activities for the youth to participate in during the day. We plan it according to a theme that is picked so we can plan crafts and costumes.
Local organizations that come share in the fun & provide interactive educational & cultural activities, in an outdoor super fun themed day. All stations are volunteer run by community & multicultural organizations. Bouncy castle, Dunk Tank & tug of war!
