Our Cubs take part in lots of activities that go towards various “activity” and “challenge” badges, which they then get awarded to put on their uniform – there’s a lot of badges and awards available to young people in the Cubs section.

This is what they should look like:

Activity badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Cubs to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

Staged Activity Badges

Staged Activity Badges are available to young people from Beavers to Explorers, and cover a range of topics and skills. The stages have increasing levels of difficulty, and a Cub can begin at whichever stage offers them an appropriate level of challenge.

Challenge awards

Gaining a challenge badge involves a number of more a tasks within the Pack or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world, and we try and complete one of these each term.
