    Contacts in California

    Does anyone have or know how to find a young Scout group in Calafornia that our Beavers can write to?

    They don't have scout groups in the USA. Cub packs and scout troops are separate entities, even if they are chartered (sponsored) by the same charter (sponsoring) organisation.

    You will need to contact a Cub Scout pack that has a Tiger Cubs den (age around 7), but I'm not sure how you do this. There is a person whose details are on scout.org.uk somewhere, who is responsible for undertaking such work, but I'm not sure how succesful they are. Insane Scouter may be able to provide better advice.
