Beaver Scouts (Age 5-7): Activities

Choose how you would like to explore Beaver Scout activities and adventures!

Beaver Scout activities and adventures are organized into six difference Program Areas at The Pond. Once you have selected a Group and enrolled, you will brainstorm with your Beaver Lodge or Colony what kind of activities and adventures (a.k.a. Trail Cards) to explore in each different Program Area at The Pond.

Activities by Program Area

Trail Cards are activities that must all be completed to achieve one Program Area.

The Canadian Path is divided into six Program Areas

While planning their adventures, Beaver Scouts may include more than one Program Area, making the adventure more challenging and encouraging development in all of the SPICES. Trail Cards are a great way for Beavers to map their plan for achieving each of the six Program Areas throughout the year. With new activities to enjoy through fun team building games, Trail Cards help Beavers discover the world around them.
