There is a HUGE range of badges to work towards including activity badges and challenge awards.
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Some activity badges are covered during pack activities but you can achieve others in your own time. We have created a series of badge information sheets for the most popular badges to do at home.
Staged Activity Badges
These give Beaver Scouts the chance to try something new or get better at something they already know. Beavers can choose the right stage for their skills rather than age. With staged activities Beavers get to try the same challenges as Beavers, Scouts and Explorers. They can jump ahead to a higher stage if they are ready.
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the colony. 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.

Personal Challenge Badge
We will offer many opportunities within the cub programme to achieve all of the Challenge Badges. The Personal Challenge badge involves working on two challenges over at least a 4 week period outside of cubs. The challenges must be agreed with your Beaver Leaders.
