Core badges

Badges, obtained upon joining, moving on from the Pack, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.

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.

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.

Staged Activity Badges

There are several activity badges staged across all sections and a Cub can gain whichever badge is appropriate to the level they have reached.

A Cub should only wear the highest of each staged badge they have gained.
