Beaver has always enjoyed hanging out with Wally and Wally's big kid friends, and in turn Wally has always enjoyed having Beaver around. But Beaver's social life changes when Wally, Eddie and Tooey join the boy scouts, but at age 7¾, Beaver does not yet meet the minimum 11 year-old age requirement to join. When Wally and his scout-mates go on a weekend long camping trip, Beaver has to come up with his own fun, especially as his only real of age friend Larry is sick. As Beaver's not used to hanging out with his classmates, they may not know that he is available to play. And Wally's friends not in the scouts, like Chester, may not want Beaver around unless Wally's there. So what will Beaver do? Written by Huggo
