There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Scout Section. We will work towards many of these during pack activities, but some you can do at home.
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Staged Activity Badges
These give Scouts the chance to try something new or get better at something they already know. Scouts can choose the right stage for their skills rather than age. With staged activities Scouts get to try the same challenges as Beavers, Cubs and Explorers. They can jump ahead to a higher stage if they are ready.
Scout badges to do at home
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Troop 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.
We will offer many opportunities within the Scout programme to achieve all of the Challenge Badges but these two need to be done in your OWN TIME!
