A version of the opening ceremony to use with Beavers




- Call the Colony to "Build a Dam" (form a circle around a leader/ helper)
- On a signal from the leader, (arms raised and then lowered to the leader's side slowly), the Beaver get into the chomping position (crouch down, holding their index and middle fingers bent together and near their mouths, symbolising a Beavers Teeth)
- Leader calls, “1, 2, 3 who are we?”
- Beavers answer, "We are Beaver Scouts can’t you see?” "B E A V E R S, fun and friends we’re the best!”
- On a second signal, the Beavers jump up, clapping their hands behind them, symbolising the Beaver slapping the water with their tail.
- All beavers face the flag and a beaver breaks the flag.
