The Otters are the youngest section in our program, for children aged 5-7 (grades K-2). The large group of Otters is called a Raft, and within it, Otter Dens. Otters go on adventures, learn useful outdoor and family skills, and participate in age-appropriate service to the community. They are crafting with their hands, working as a group, and camping together with their families.
Otters earn badges, participate in ceremonies, and have a magic and lore that is exciting and dynamic. All adult leaders must register with BPSA as background-checked Rovers and will need to complete a Brownsea Training Course within their first year of membership. A minimum of two registered Rovers is required at all times when youth scouts are present.
