Beavers moving up to Cubs


Table, Cord, Table cover


Beavers form a line at one end of hall
Cubs and Akela form a line at other end
There is a table placed in the middle with a cover over touching the floor at each side
A cord or rope is placed on the floor running from the Beavers side, under the table to the Cubs side
Beavers say goodbye with the words of the moving on ceremony accompanied by the BSL

Beaver(s) moving up follow the cord and go under the table and cover they change tops from beaver to cubs
When all beavers have changed one of the Cubs gently pulls the cord which the Beavers are holding under the table and pulls them across the river to Cubs
emerged they are welcomed by Akela and invested into cubs
