Otter Motto: “Busy and Bright” – Otter is the youngest section of BPSA scouting, for kids ages 5-7. Otters learn useful family skills, community skills, and learn to play safely together while being introduced to scouting and preparing for the Timberwolf program. The Otter section is known as the Raft with 32-40 scouts, and is sub-divided into Dens made of 8-10 children.

503rd Spotted Owl Otters rarely meet indoors unless a task requires a sheltered place. Otters will visit many of SW Portland’s natural areas, returning at different times of the year to witness the changes each season brings to a familiar place.
