There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Cub Section. At Cradley we try to make it possible for Cubs to gain as many baddges and awards as they can!
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Cubs to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
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.
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.
Some activity badges are sponsored by outside companies, and these companies often provide extra exciting resource packs to help Cubs towards gaining their badges
See below for details on where to obtain a scout shirt and where certain badges are to placed!
