Age: 5 through 7.
Motto: Busy and Bright.
Promise: I promise to do my best to obey my parents and leaders and be a good Otter.
Law: An Otter is always busy and bright and does a good turn every day.
This age group is the most open and eager of the ages. One may think they are too young to learn about things like knife and fire safety, but they are not. They are open about their feelings, they have immense empathy for others, and they have a willingness to take on seemingly impossible tasks with verve.
The peer leaders are examples at this age. A scout that exemplifies Otterness.
