The official uniform for Beavers is:
– coby hat in blue and brown with Beavers Canada crest;
– brown vest with blue pockets, Beavers Canada strip on the top edge of the left pocket and coloured lodge patch on the right;
– blue neckerchief, or group neckerchief worn cross-over style, see diagram;
– neckerchief slide (Woggle);
– group, district, regional, provincial, world and sponsor/partner emblems and service stripes.
The colours brown and blue symbolize nature; brown for the earth and the beaver’s fur coat, and
blue for the clear sky and fresh sparkling water. White is the colour of the moon and stars. They
give us light to help us find our way through the darkness of the night and symbolize distant
goals, seemingly far away but attainable.
Other items worn on the uniform are the registration flash, positioned below the Beavers Canada
strip on the vest, and the Beaver tail, attached to the back of the hat.
Teach your Beaver to respect his/her uniform and wear it proudly. After your child is invested,
encourage him/her to wear the full uniform.
These items, along with other related books and accessories are available at your local Scout Shop.
