Otters learn useful family skills, community skills, and learn to play safely together. There is a proficiency badge system which includes several “paws” and other badges for hobbies, projects, friendship, and camping. The highest award is the Swimming Otter Badge.

Otters have meetings once a week for one hour. Each meeting contains a variety of activities. A typical meeting consists of the opening ceremony, a game, a craft or other activity, a story, and the closing ceremony.
