Activity badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Cub 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.

Follow this link to the Scout Association web pages for full information on activity badges.

Staged Activity Badges

These give Cub Scouts the chance to try something new or get better at something they already know. Cub Scouts can choose the right stage for their skills rather than  age.  With staged activities Cub Scouts get to try the same challenges as Beavers, Scouts and Explorers. They can jump ahead to a higher stage if they are ready.

Challenge awards

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious 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.
