There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Beaver Section. At Cradley we try to make it possible for beavers to gain as many baddges and awards as they can!
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Staged Activity Badges
Staged Activity Badges are available to young people from Beavers to Explorers, and cover a range of topics and skills. The stages have increasing levels of difficulty, and a Beaver can begin at whichever stage offers them an appropriate level of challenge.
Achieving a Challenge Award involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community.
These Awards support the main themes of the Programme; outdoor and adventure; world and skills. Beavers take part in a range of activities to develop their skills and understanding in each of the challenge areas.
In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Colony, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.
Some activity badges are sponsored by outside companies, and these companies often provide resources to support Beaver Scouts towards gaining their badges.
Note for clarity, the badges on the Right sleeve are:
Top Most name tape: Colony/Pack/Troop Name, i.e. Wolf
