INVESTITURE, PROMISE & PRAYER

Investiture & the Beaver Scout Promise

Once a new Beaver has settled into our Colony we hold a small Investiture ceremony which parents/guardians are invited to attend. The Colony and its leaders stand in a circle. The Beaver Scout Leader explains that they are going to become Beaver Scouts today. Everyone makes the Scout sign and says the Beaver Scout Promise together. The new Beaver Scout(s) receive their World Membership Badge, County/Area/Region and District badges, and the Group name tape and shake hands with The Beaver Scout Leader using the Scout left handshake.

The Beaver Scout Promise

The core Beaver Scout Promise is as follows but can be adapted to suit an alternative religion by changing the final word to a deity of the childs choice.

I promise to do my best to be kind and helpful and to love God

For Beavers who are not religious there is an alternative promise as follows:

I promise to do my best to be kind and helpful and to love our world.

The Beaver Scout Leader will discuss with each child which version of the promise they would like to make before the ceremony takes place.

The Beaver Prayer

At the end of each meeting the very last thing we do is say the Beaver Prayer. Again the core prayer below can be adapted by individual Beavers to suit their chosen religion. Beavers who are not religous may leave out the ‘Dear Lord’ and ‘Amen’ or simply remain quiet while those who wish to do so say the prayer.

Dear Lord

Help me to be a good Beaver, always busy and bright

Be with those so dear to me and help me do things right

Amen, goodnight
