Beaver Scout Uniform
Our new uniforms have been
unveiled - the first major redesign in 20 years! Details on the new
uniform are below, and you
can check out the new look at http://www.scouts.ca/uniformlaunch.
The new uniform is primarily for new members as
they enter the program, or for when uniforms need to be replaced.
Current Colony members are welcome to continue to wear the older
style uniform until they leave the Colony program, or until they outgrow
|Scouting began as a
Movement in which members wore a simple but distinctive uniform. The uniforms worn
today have a number of purposes,
including identification of the wearer as a member of Scouts
Canada and the World Organization of the Scout
Movement, encouraging pride of belonging to Scouting, and providing a common
dress in which members from all segments of Canadian society can meet as equals.
Rooted in more than 100
years of tradition, the iconic Scouting uniform is getting an exciting new
makeover! As part of a comprehensive national Action Plan for Canadian
Scouting, Scouts Canada recently announced its partnership with the Joe
Fresh® brand to design a stylish and dynamic clothing line that reflects
the organization’s spirit and energy. The contemporary uniforms were
revealed in March 2011 during a celebratory event held in Toronto, Ontario -
and were adopted for use in September 2011.
The Beaver uniform
is blue and brown. These colours symbolize colours of nature; brown for the earth
and the Beaver's fur coat and blue for the clear sky and the fresh sparkling water.
A Beaver should be
taught at the outset to respect his uniform and to wear it proudly. The Beaver
should be encouraged to wear the full uniform after investiture. Our Colony requires
that a full uniform be worn by all members as shown below:
