Animal lover – check. Book worm – check. Photographer – check. Footballer – check. Daredevil – check.

You name it, we’ve got a badge for it – over 200 of them actually. Explorers, Scouts, Cubs & Beavers work together on badges at their weekly meetings, away at camps and events, or at home. Badges are easy to earn, and for many, you don’t need anyone special to sign them off.

There’s never any pressure to do badges. Explorers, Scouts, Cubs & Beavers can do as many or as few as they like.

But for those up for a challenge, there are loads of exciting badges to aim for, such as the Chief Scout’s AcornBronzeSilver, GoldPlatinum and Diamond Awards. These are the highest awards that Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers can earn.

And for those going even further, the King’s Scout Award is the top achievement for young people in Scouts.
