Regularly link up with the sections above yours regardless of if you’re working on the moving on process together – doing so will help you build relationships, plan joint activities and share ideas.
Remind Beavers of former members who have since moved on to Cubs, to reassure them familiar faces are waiting on the other side.
Encourage young people to complete their Moving On Award, which involves spending three weeks with their potential new group while keeping up their regular routine. Doing so helps them make friends and familiarise themselves with how things will work in their new section.
Direct Beavers to the Cub pages of their Beaver Logbook – available from Scout Store. Here, there is space for them to write down the names of their new leaders and to draw themselves as a Cub Scout. Ask them: what do they think will be different about Cubs? What will stay the same?
Consider having a moving on ceremony to celebrate all the skills Beavers have learned during their time with you, and to help them process the change.
