Core badges

In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Troop, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.

Challenge Awards

Gaining a Challenge Award involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Troop or community. There are several challenge awards 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 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 six activity badges staged across the sections and a Beaver can gain whichever badge is appropriate to the level they have reached.

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