There are many, many badges to be awarded through Scouting, some are completed out with the weekly Cubs session and can be done through school, home life or the weekly clubs so many children attend.
There are many of them, so do have a look at the Scout Association website to find out what needs to be done for them and see which ones your Cub has already completed – click here. Simply print off the requirements page and have their teacher, coach, etc sign it off and bring it in. If you are able to show photographs to evidence the tasks, then that will do nicely!
Below are just some of the badges we commonly see completed out with the weekly sessions – but there are loads more which may already have been completed! Make sure you look at the Challenge Awards at the bottom as we’d love it if your Cub could complete the Chief Scout’s Silver Award before heading off to Scouts, but we’ll need your help with this.
