There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Cub Scout Section.
Membership & Joining In Awards
These are the Core Badges for the Cub Scout section.
These badges allow Cub Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community.
Chief Scout Silver Award
This badge is the highest award available in the Cub Scout section. To gain this award a Cub must complete the first six of the of the Challenge Awards above.
Staged activity badges
The staged activity badges have been designed to provide a unified approach throughout the sections. There are seven activity badges staged across the sections. A young person can gain whichever badge is appropriate to the level they have reached. It is possible, for example, for a Cub Scout who is an excellent swimmer to gain a higher level badge than a Scout who has just taken up the activity.
These awards encourage the Cub Pack to link up with another Section within your own Scout Group, a Section in another group, or another youth group or organisation, to work together on a project that will help other people.
