Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers have a lot of fun discovering new things and experiences they wouldn't have elsewhere. Along the way they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world. Scouting offers a world where youth can discover the best in themselves and the best in others, and offers adventures that they will remember for a lifetime!

Beavers Meeting Info. – Monday, April 19, 2021

Beavers will be meeting VIRTUALLY on Monday, April 19, 2021 from 6:15 – 7:00 p.m. 

Hi Beavers and families.
In our continued effort to keep everyone safe, we will be meeting online this week. This week we will be participating on Week 1 of the Great 8 Challenge.

As part of our challenge this week we will be creating a no bake snack for camping/hiking.

If you don’t have these ingredients at home you can choose an alternative or let Scouter Hawkeye know before Monday.

Ingredients:
-2 and 1/2 cups regular oats
-1 cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds or leave out
-1/2 cup dried cranberries, or raisins
-2/3 to 3/4 cup peanut butter
– approx. 1/2 cup honey
-1 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)

Instructions:
Mix oats, seeds, and raisins/dried cranberries in a large bowl. Whisk together the peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. At this point, I’ve found it helpful to microwave this mixture slightly, for just 10 to 20 seconds, as it softened the mixture and helped it come together. Whisk the peanut butter and honey mixture a bit more, and pour over the dry ingredients. Mix well, until the oat mixture is well-coated and everything is combined. If it feels too dry, add a little more honey.

Press mixture into a pan lined with saran or parchment paper and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Cut and enjoy

Looking forward to seeing you online tomorrow.

*We would ask that all youth wear their group necker (if you have one).
