What badges are there?


Through their time in Cubs, the young people will be working towards the Chief Scout’s Silver Award. In order to achieve this, Cubs have to earn a number of Challenge Badges, and Activity Badges. Full details of all the Challenge Badges and the Silver Award can be found on scouts.org.uk.

Activity Badges

Cubs can also earn badges based on their hobbies, interests, or other activities. They might earn these during Cub meetings, but they can also attempt them at home. Full details of all the Activity Badges can be found on scouts.org.uk.

You will be able to keep track of what Awards and Badges your child has earned, and how close they might be to earning other Badges, using the OSM Parent Portal.

Where do the badges go?

Your Cub Leader will be able to help if you have any questions, but the diagram shows where each type of badge should be sewn onto the sweatshirt.

You can transfer the following badges from the Beaver uniform :

Chief Scout’s Bronze Award

Highest numbered Joining In award

Highest numbered Staged Activity Badges (Nights Away, Hikes Away, Swimmer etc. – the round light blue badges)
